British scientists have created an amazing three-minute symphony that is out of this world - by using cosmic particles detected on a 40-year space journey.

The real-life version of the The Planets orchestral suite pays tribute to the 40th anniversary of NASA launching its Voyager 1 spacecraft's mission into deep space.

Cambridge scientist Dr Domenico Vicinanza and Dr Genevieve Williams from the University of Exeter re-interpreted data from its on-board particle detector into musical notes.
