Team records 'music' from stars

HD49933 was one of the stars observed using the Corot telescope
A team writing in Science journal says the sounds have enabled them to get information about processes deep within stars for the first time.
If you listen closely to the sounds of each star - by clicking on the media in this page - you'll hear a regular repeating pattern.
These indicate that the entire star is pulsating.
You'll also note that the sound of one star is very slightly different to the other.
