There are some "space Sounds" on youtube wherein they feed the electromagnetic signals and then they are reproduced by a computer. Jupiter sounds
nice. Some of these sounds are very relaxing to people. I would be interested in others opinions on these.
The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.
The creation of the Barometer in the 1643, by Evangelista Torricelli, allowed man to judge the height of the atmosphere based on the weight of
the air pressing down. It was estimated that the atmosphere was roughly 8km high. High level flying added to our knowledge that the atmosphere got
thinner with increased altitude, and measurements were taken at various heights. As a matter of fact, the altimeter of aircraft are set to ground
level barometric pressure, then they base their altitude from sea level on static port barometric pressure readings. So we had a pretty good idea at
what height the atmosphere ended by the time we were launching our first rockets.
Good question BTW..
