Jupiter song

"There are two varieties of Jovian radio bursts: Through the loudspeaker of a shortwave receiver, the so-called 'L-burst' sounds like ocean waves crashing on a distant beach. The 'L' stands for long. If a recording is slowed down dramatically, the S-burst sound like eerie drifting whistlers. Through the loudspeaker of a shortwave receiver, the so-called 'S-burst' produces a staccato of rapid popping sound with a beat that reminds some of woodpeckers. The 'S' stands for short."
