asteroid song

A brief post to alert you to this ‘song’ heard by the Rosetta spacecraft 500 million kilometers from earth as its Philae lander detached to land on the asteroid.  (And yes, this is another of the greatest fruits from our biological roots).  Some instrument picked up fluctuations in the electromagnetic field surrounding the asteroid.  Listen to it at:
