The actual sound recording from the Huygens Probe as it descends through the methane atmospheres of Titan, to land on the surface of this moon of Saturn.
This is the sound of the landing on another body in our solar system most distant from the earth.
Professor Carolin Crawford, Gresham Professor of Astronomy, introduces the recording, describing the 2 1/2 hour descent through the methane winds blowing at 6 to 7 km per hour. She then goes on to explain why we haven't yet been able to hear the sound of the atmosphere of Mars, and how we might be able to soon.

This is an extract from a free public lecture by Carolin Crawford, Gresham Professor of Astronomy: 'The Sounds of the Universe'.
