Saturn getting all jiggy with it.

Super Space Probe Cassini!!! has been peeping Saturn's radio emissions, and it sounds funky fresh. Red Nova lets you listen in here.

It's good. Sounds like the soundtrack to Forbidden Planet.

(Nerd note: Forbidden Planet (with Leslie Neilsen!) was the first mainstream movie to feature an all electronic soundtrack. A wife/husband basically ran a homemade analog synthesizer into the suface of the Sun (figuratively). What you hear is basically the death screams of crude transistors as they short out into oblivion, leaving only the acrid smell of burnt ozone. Most people would have difficulty identifying it as music. What the hell is wrong with everybody? Anyway, it turned out to be they were right about what space sounds like: all fucked up.)

Oh give it up, BOAAC. I have been attempting to enlighten these proles with this knowledge for 4 and half YEARS now.

In fact, most of your info is CRIBBED from notes I have written and have stored in my trapper keeper since the year 2001.

Funny you should finally choose this time to use MY NOTES.
