They didn't create the Pulsar, there isn't enough mass on earth to match the density of even one cubic foot of one.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulsar


Pulsars are like giant floating orbs of unfathomably dense matter with two giant beams shooting out of it so powerful they'd obliterate nearly anything within range, and that it pointed at.

I would have thought that it sounded like white noise.........I wonder if they all sound the same or if they are all different ?

So is this some EM emission converted into representative sound waves? Wouldn't that be kinda arbitrary?

You going/plan on going?

A pulsar is a highly magnetised neutron star, with a radius of 10-15 km, having somewhat greater mass than the Sun which has a radius of approximately 1 million km. Radiation is beamed out along the magnetic poles and pulses of radiation are received as the beam crosses the Earth, in the same manner as the beam from a lighthouse causes flashes. Being enormous cosmic flywheels with a tick attached, they make some of the best clocks known to mankind.
These sounds directly correspond to the radio-waves emitted by the brightest pulsars in the sky as received by some of the largest radio telescopes in the world.


Sonification of Pulsars

The movie Contact was all about listening to cosmic noise.
