O’siyo. There are many beautiful paintings, drawings, and various depictions of ‘Mother Earth’ by Native People, but never have there been recordings of her voice. A NASA spacecraft has recorded what scientists call “chorus,” an “electromagnetic phenomenon caused by plasma waves in Earth’s radiation belts,” . American Indians know better, they call this echo-siren sound ‘Mother Earth’s’ song to the universe.
“The delicate sounds echo like a mixture of birdsong and deep-sea creatures. But they are neither. The ghostly notes come from our own Mother Earth.
A NASA spacecraft has sent back the first-ever recordings of Mother Earth singing to the universe, and the sound is awe-inspiring. It’s called “chorus,” an “electromagnetic phenomenon caused by plasma waves in Earth’s radiation belts,” as NASA described it in a release.
Although the music is known to ham-radio operators, who have listened to it from far away, this is the first time they’ve been recorded at the source, NASA said.
The signals were picked up by NASA’s twin Radiation Belt Storm Probes as they studied the radiation belts, which are regions of energized particles, mostly protons and electrons, that are trapped in Earth’s magnetosphere, about 4,000 miles from the planet’s surface, according to the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center…Indeed, the agency intends to prevent Mother Earth from being a one-hit wonder and record more of her music—in stereo next time.”

“We’re sitting on our blessed Mother Earth from which we get our strength and determination, love and humility – all the beautiful attributes that we’ve been given. So turn to one another; love one another; respect one another; respect Mother Earth; respect the waters – because that’s life itself!”
