Here are a compilation of recordings made in space, recorded by either NASA or SETI. I don’t know, I just really like space and the sounds can be soothing. I hope that you will agree. +more masterposts

Jupiter sound waves: This is the sound Jupiter emits via electromagnetic waves.

Let children read whatever they want and then talk about it with them. If parents and kids can talk together, we won’t have as much censorship because we won’t have as much fear.

Saw this on my dash just as I finished formatting a teacher’s companion for this year’s CBLDF Liberty Annual and, yeah, I agree with this.

Austerity Leads Ensemble to Adapt - William Christie and Les Arts Florissants in Season of Change - New York Times

"William Christie plans to lead his Baroque ensemble, Les Arts Florissants, in a pair of concerts at Versailles next summer to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the death of Louis XIV, whose patronage established the French musical style that Mr. Christie has helped revive.

The music of that era — works by Lully, Charpentier, Couperin, Marais and others — lives on, thanks in large part to groups like Les Arts Florissants. The extravagant court patronage, not so much. Now, as Europe grapples with austerity measures and changing paradigms in arts funding, Mr. Christie said that his ensemble, like many others, is learning to adapt…

Les Arts Florissants — the group takes its name from a short opera by Charpentier — will tour this season in Europe, South America and North America, where it will perform in April at Lincoln Center, according to a season announcement the group released this week. Its pending move to the new Philharmonie, where the Orchestre de Paris will be the resident orchestra, highlights the extent to which Mr. Christie — a harpsichordist, conductor and musicologist from Buffalo — has come to be accepted, and revered, in France.

..Les Arts Florissants is commemorating the 250th anniversary of the death of Rameau with a 10-CD boxed set featuring many of Mr. Christie’s Rameau recordings released by the Harmonia Mundi label, and a tour of Luxembourg, Moscow and London with the program “Rameau, Maître à Danser,” presenting two of his choreographed one-act ballets.

And Mr. Christie will bring Les Arts Florissants and six singers from Le Jardin des Voix to New York on April 23 for a concert of Italian music at Alice Tully Hall as part of Lincoln Center’s Great Performers series…”
