Earth's Cries Recorded

I'm a geek. I've never tried to hide that. LOL Getting a degree in science simply fits me.

So when I was logging in to my email today and saw the article titled "Earth's Cries Recorded" I had to read it. http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/080701-st-earth-sounds.html

It's actually a really cool phenomenon if you think about it. Everyone I've ever talked to who has been to see the Northern Lights talks about a crackling in the air, a sound that sounds almost surreal. I hope to one day be able to hear it myself.

It's neat to know that this sound is magnified and sent out into space. Even more interesting that now we might have a way to find planets with atmospheres, due to the vibrations of the holes in them.

Simply cool.
