In space, perhaps nobody can hear your scream — but that doesn’t mean that stellar travel is a silent pursuit. Now, NASA has started compiling mountains of historic space-related audio clips for us all to listen to. And there are some belters.

For real. Maybe some kind of mash-up is required? [SoundCloud via CreateDigitalMusic via Engadget]
