Before settling into orbit around Saturn in 2004, the Cassini spacecraft faced a white-knuckle ride through the plane of the planet's rings. The spacecraft was bombarded with about 100,000 impacts from dust particles in less than five minutes. While its antenna shielded the craft, Cassini's radio- and plasma-wave instrument measured the assault. When converted into an audio file, the interstellar cacophony is reminiscent of a hailstorm on Earth.
