NASA's spooky Halloween playlist will give you the chills!

NASA said that the data used to create the playlist was collected by instruments on spacecraft that capture radio emissions, which scientists converted into sound waves.

However, space scientists sometimes take signals from beyond the mortal realm of human senses - including radio waves, plasma waves, and magnetic fields - and convert them into audio tracks.

A few of the recordings are described below. The soundtracks come from celestial bodies including Jupiter and Saturn, as well as many different types of stars.

NASA's Juno probe zips around Jupiter every few weeks at speeds of up to 130,000 miles per hour, plowing through all kinds of invisible fields in the process. Maybe it's time to spice it up with some truly scary tracks: horrifying sounds from the void of space. The waves are electric and magnetic fields moving through the ions and electrons that compose the plasma. It should be noted that these sounds are not captured using audio recorders.

"Saturn's Radio Emissions" were recorded with the Cassini spacecraft, which recently plunged into the planet's atmosphere, bringing its long mission to an end. The sounds recorded are very similar to the radio emissions from Earth's auroras. The difference between the high- and low-frequency waves produces the whistling sound. Sounds of a Comet Encounter: During its February 14, 2011, flyby of comet Tempel 1, an instrument on the protective shield on NASA's Stardust spacecraft was pelted by dust particles and small rocks, as can be heard in this audio track. During its February 14, 2011, flyby of comet Tempel 1, an instrument on the protective shield on NASA's Stardust spacecraft was pelted by dust particles and small rocks, as can be heard in this audio track. Over 11 minutes, the spacecraft was hit by about 5,000 bits of rock, ice and dust.
