Astroboffins create music from SPAAAAAAAAAAACE

For my MSc thesis I worked on part of the design of an asteroseismometer, which used Doppler shifting of absorption lines in stellar spectra. In those days that approach produces a much stronger signal than a photometric approach (measuring the slight brightness fluctuations caused by the changes in temperature) used in the this study. Interesting to see the advances in precision in current instruments (I gather the data used were from the Keppler mission). Great work from those astroboffins
