Friday’s Freeware: Fly me to the Moon
If I knew that one day I would talk to you about the NASA on Audiofanzine for you to make Music, I would have said « Yeah, right! »…
Indeed it’s quite a special freeware I want to talk about this week, for the National American Spatial Agency recently released part of its sound collection on SoundCloud. There is no copyright on these files so you’re free to download them and use them in your productions.
You’ll find the famous « Houston, we have a problem », « The Eagle has landed » as well as various radio messages and noises from the Apollo, Mercury, Cassini and the Soviet Sputnik satellite.
If you want to remix the files, note that you’re required to name the source (NASA) and you cannot use the NASA name or logo in any commercial production (read these guidelines for more info).
You may transport now to SoundCloud. The NASA also archived its audio files in 24-bit / 48kHz WAV format at archive.org/details/nasaaudiocollection. More than 200 files are available there.
Have an interstellar weekend and meet you back on Earth on Monday!
