Saturn Electrostatic Discharges is neither an STD nor the name of one of WFMU's 2-6 a.m. overnight radio programs. It is, from what I have crudely gathered a bunch of radio racket that occurs when lightning is in Saturn's atmosphere. Then there's those hot gases which seem to really stir shit up, allowing scientists from the Cassini-Huygens Mission to Saturn to study just what the hell those 3 rings (conveniently called A, B and C) are doing there. Fascinating as that may be, we just like the creepy noise. Here's a source for your space audio fix, and here's a recent recording (mp3) from our most blingingest neighbor in the solar system.
