With permission from the SETI@home project:

Listen to Radio Signals from Space

We've taken ten seconds of data from the Arecibo telescope and converted it to sound. The original data is around 1.42 GigaHertz (billion cycles/second), which is way too high to hear. We've extracted a 10 KHz band and shifted it down to the audible 0-10KHz range.

Expect to hear a hissing sound. That's how radio signals from space generally sound. The type of signal SETI@home is searching for would sound like a whistle. It would probably be too faint to hear (although SETI@home could hopefully detect it).

About This Category

This is a collection of pictures and sounds evocative of, or related to, memes.

A prime example of a meme or 'infective idea' might be a compulsive ad jingle that you can't get out of your head, or a memorable quote or 'one-liner' such as "Infamy! Infamy! They've all got it in for me!" from the film "Carry on Cleo" (see a BBC news item on top film quotes).

If you are interested in the science of thinking, the mind, and memes, then visit UK Memes Central, or read Dr Susan Blackmore's The Meme Machine.
