One small step for man: NASA releases audio from space missions

One small step for man: NASA releases audio from space missions

If you've ever been interested in the space program, you've probably seen the amazing sights our astronauts have brought back. NASA has released a ton of amazing, beautiful photos for you to gawk at.

But the sights are only part of the story. There are also amazing sounds from the space program, and now you can explore those, too.

NASA has released hours of  iconic recordings, from Neil Armstrong's "One small step for man" speech to Apollo 13's mesmerizing "Houston, we've had a problem" (sorry, Tom Hanks, that's how they really said it). What's more, you can download them and use them yourself.

"You can hear the roar of a space shuttle launch or Neil Armstrong's "one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind" every time you get a phone call, if you make our sounds your ringtone," the space agency said.

"Or, you can hear the memorable words 'Houston, we've had a problem,' every time you make an error on your computer."

Also, you can hear other spacecraft sounds, launches, bleeps, bloops and more at NASA's Soundcloud account. In all, there are more than 60 files, and they're all free.
