That may very well be the case, but that doesn't mean space isn't filled with an abundance of unusual sounds in the form of radio bursts, electromagnetic pulses, solar wind, charged particle bursts and other celestial emissions.

Perhaps one of the weirdest of all is the low rumble of light curve waves from a star known as KIC7671081B, captured by NASA's Kepler space observatory.

In honor of Halloween, NASA has released its own playlist filled with converted sound files showing off the interplanetary music of our cosmos.

"Saturn's Radio Emissions" were recorded with the Cassini spacecraft, which recently plunged into the planet's atmosphere, bringing its long mission to an end.

Sounds of a Comet Encounter: During its February 14, 2011, flyby of comet Tempel 1, an instrument on the protective shield on NASA's Stardust spacecraft was pelted by dust particles and small rocks, as can be heard in this audio track. The radio waves from Saturn are closely related to the auroras near the poles of the planet.
