Stellar Respiration: Star Breath-Sound
Via asteroseismology I've been listening to the stars breathe today and they sound ready to perform Darude's Sandstorm. Roaming and researching, I happened upon University of Birmingham studies of resonant oscillation - which reveal the noise or breath within a star, which reveal its age. Sound and brightness of a star vary with age. A star's oscillation affects its brightness and scientists are now able to digitally translate that oscillating breath. Hence, the Moog sound.
