The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office confirmed Monday night that it had received 17 human specimens that were found at O’Hare International Airport on Monday.
Sources said the specimens are human heads, still covered in skin. Authorities said no foul play was suspected. U.S. Customs and Border Protection were investigating but declined to comment Monday night.
"That’s the sound of the Earth “singing,” as recorded by the awesomely-named Storm Probe mission — a couple of satellites investigating the famous Van Allen belts, intense radiation zones that surround our planet like a doughnut. The Storm Probes, launched last month, are mapping the density of charged particles.
The whale song is an audio rendering of radio waves captured by the Probes and caused by the two Van Allen belts, inner and outer. You don’t actually hear the audio in space, of course, but the radio waves — known as “chorus” — are for real.
Ham radio operators have been hearing chorus in the background for years, but there’s never been a recording this clear. “Our data is sampled at 16 bits, the same as a CD, which has not been done before in the radiation belts,” says mission scientist Dave Sibeck. “This makes the data very high quality and shows that our instrument is very, very healthy.”
