What did the Big Bang sound like?

Not really a BANG, apparently. But maybe like this.

Note: What you hear is the first million years of sound (1 second = 100,000 years), held at constant volume, and shifted up approximately 50 octaves. Notice the three stages; descending scream, building roar, growing hiss.

More sounds of space here. Here’s a sample: Spooky sounds emitted by Saturn and recorded by the Cassini spacecraft.

Very cool science blog: Cocktail Party Physics. It even has drink recipes!
