Sounds of Mars: NASA’s InSight Senses Martian Wind - YouTube
Listen to Martian wind blow across NASA’s InSight lander. The spacecraft’s seismometer and air pressure sensor picked up vibrations from 10-15 mph (16-24 kph) winds as they blew across Mars’ Elysium Planitia on Dec. 1, 2018. The seismometer readings are in the range of human hearing, but are nearly all bass and difficult to hear on laptop speakers and mobile devices. We provide the original audio and a version pitched up by two octaves to make them audible on mobile devices. Playback is suggested on a sound system with a subwoofer or through headphones. Readings from the air pressure sensor have been sped up by a factor of 100 times to make them audible.

Listen to harry potter sounds
These atmospheres recreate all kinds of Harry Potter sounds. Feel like a Hogwarts student and listen to ambient hogwarts sounds.

Why Audio Never Goes Viral
“Audio never goes viral,” writes radio and podcast producer Nate DiMeo. “If you posted the most incredible story — literally, the most incredible story that has ever been told since people have had the ability to tell stories, it will never, ever get as many hits as a video of a cat with a moustache.”

E.O. Wilson's Advice for Future Scientists : NPR
"You need a lot of time," says Dr. Wilson. "It's a good idea to be alone a lot and talk to yourself. I don't know if—how many other scientists talk to themselves. I do so all the time silently. And I guess I risk my reputation for complete sanity by admitting that. And I've now wondered how many creative scientists, people who are constantly in search of new ideas, new ways of looking at things, new enterprises, talk to themselves in a way as though they were speaking to another person, and trying to open up new subjects, new ways to get into old subjects. And this is a very good mental process for doing original science."

How to play sound from a web page - UCL
"Why it should be so difficult to replay a sound from a web page remains a mystery. These pages demonstrate some of the many ways that have been tried over the years, from the use of a simple link to the use of the latest HTML 5 tag. I'll focus on the replay of simple uncompressed (aka PCM) WAV files, since that's what we use for perceptual experiments. Many of these techniques will work with MP3 or OGG compressed files, too."
