Well I don't think it is worthless at all. But then again I can look at a
glass of water and find that interesting too. And while we are getting picky
about grammar, it would actually be "among them" instead of "between them",
as at least three of us have responded with responses of "cool and
beautiful".

So why do you think it is a sham? It is like you said, recorded and
processed from earth, but if it is actually from space (and it is isn't
it?), it is worth a listen.

 I am an avid star watcher, and to think that there is any sound coming from
space at all is pretty interesting, and even if it has to be processed to be
heard, it is kind of magical. I have also heard hydro lines cackle in
response to aurora flares and I find that extremely fascinating (and dare I
say "beautiful").

Of course you may find all that worthless too. I don't.
