All you need to know about the Drum Language of the Congo

The Lokele people of the Congo use two-tone log drums to communicate phrases in their language.  They can accomplish this because their language is tonal.  That is, each syllable in a word has a high or low tone.  The tonal patterns that result in their speech are the same tonal patterns that they drum.  By communicating in this way, they create drum language in which their vocabulary is always understood in the context of phrases.  Listen to Phil explain how this works by pressing the Play button below.

Spooky Space 'Sounds': real sounds from the NASA

Soaring to the depths of our universe, gallant spacecraft roam the cosmos, snapping images of celestial wonders. Some spacecraft have instruments capable of capturing radio emissions. When scientists convert these to sound waves, the results are eerie to hear. In time for Halloween, we've put together a compilation of elusive "sounds" of howling planets and whistling helium that is sure to make your skin crawl.

Hear the sound on the nasa Website: http://www.nasa.gov/vision/universe/features/halloween_sounds.html
