This 5 min symphonette was created using 37 years of Voyager spacecraft data

"An Italian scientist has taken 37 years worth of data from both Voyager space probes and turned it into music. The result is surprisingly good.
"The composer, Domenico Vicinanza, is a project manager at GĂ©ant — Europe's high-speed data network that powers Cern and the Large Hadron Collider. He used 320,000 individual measurements of cosmic particle data taken at one-hour intervals using the spacecrafts' cosmic ray detector."
