NASA has released over 60 space audio recordings including sounds of shuttle launching, Saturn's rings, Neptune, Jupiter, Uranus and famous quotes from astronauts for anyone to hear online.

After decades of collecting celestial sounds - from rocket launches and astronaut dialogue to alien lightning and interstellar plasma - NASA recently set up a SoundCloud account, letting it stream the audio clips for anyone to hear.

NASA offers 63 sounds so far. 'A Giant Leap' Neil Armstrong's most famous words when his foot touched the surface of the Moon was the first SoundCloud clip that NASA posted online, 'mother nature network' reported.

'Earthsong' also called 'Chorus' is NASA's most popular feed. It is the noise produced by an electromagnetic phenomenon caused by plasma waves in Earth's radiation belts, which loom at least 8,000 miles (12,874 km) above the surface.

NASA made this recording in 2012 with its EMFISIS probe. Another audio NASA uploaded is 'Saturn Radio'. Saturn is home to dramatic auroras that are a lot like the northern and southern lights that dance around the Earth's poles when solar wind hits the upper atmosphere.

These lights are closely related to the planet's strong radio emissions, first detected by the Cassini spacecraft in 2002.

Another clip 'The Sounds of Interstellar Space' represents data that was recorded outside the heliosphere in 2012 and 2013 by NASA's Voyager 1.

'Lift Off' are the sounds of the first manned-mission to the Moon, Apollo 11. The clip includes lift off, as well as the applause in the space center.
