Home Science Space Download your favorite NASA ringtones

Want to feel like you are out in space? Just download a bunch of historic NASA apps so your cell phone or computer can sound just like you are taking 'one giant leap for mankind.'

NASA has just released 35 different ringtones from its large collection of space events over a period spanning more than 50 years.

Jerry Colen, the App project manager at NASA's Ames Research Center (Moffett Field, California), comments on these historic apps, "NASA has been making historic sounds for over 50 years. Now we're making some of these memorable sounds easy to find and use."

You can hear the blast-off of the space shuttle, the sound of Russia's Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite in space, or hear the first man on the Moon say '"One small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind,"


Maybe you want to hear the "Water on the Moon Song" of the LCROSS spacecraft, short for 'Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite.'

These 'sounds of NASA', and many more, are all available to download as ringtones on your mobile device or as various sounds on your computer.

According to 'The Sounds of NASA Available for Download,' each of these downloads are about 20 seconds long.

For instance, hear Apollo 13 astronaut Jack Swigert state, 'Houston, we've had a problem' or listen to John Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States, give part of his famous Moon speech.
