The Eagle has landed: Nasa launches free sound library
« on: October 25, 2014, 02:43:12 PM »

Historical audio from Nasa missions has been uploaded to a free sound library.

More than 60 samples have been added to the agency's new dedicated Soundcloud account, but listeners are unable to leave comments underneath the files.

Astronaut communications, including "Houston, we've had a problem" and "the Eagle has landed", can be heard - as well as some more abstract noises made by working spacecraft and debris.

In space itself, sound is unable to travel as there is no air.
