Project Calliope is a satellite to convert the ionosphere to sound so anyone can ‘hear’ the rhythm of the activity level of space. Not theory– the tech/science is built, paid for, and on a flight manifest to launch in 2011.
If you’re interested in the music/data Calliope will produce– all royalty-free MIDI tracks for musicians to remix, you can help make it possible. The whole purpose is to fly something in orbit that we can ‘hear’ on the ground.
You can support the project by buying mission patches and flight pins (http://tinyurl.com/calliopebase)
