Ever sounds of Martian wind heard

InSight is designed to study the interior of Mars like never before using seismology instruments to detect quakes and a self-hammering mole to measure heat escape from the planet's crust

"But one of the things our mission is dedicated to is measuring motion on Mars, and naturally that includes motion caused by sound waves". Additionally, NASA reported that the winds were likely blowing from the northwest in the direction of the southeast, the way the streaks in the landing area seem to move as well. The vehicle arrived on Mars in November, successfully landing after months of travel to the Red Planet. On Friday, NASA released audio of the Martian wind, the first time sound has been recorded on another planet's surface. These are the first sounds from Mars that are detectable by human ears, according to the researchers.

Humans can now hear the haunting, low rumble of wind on Mars for the first time, after NASA's InSight lander captured vibrations from the breeze on the Red Planet, the USA space agency said Friday. The two instruments recorded the wind noise in different ways.

InSight sensors captured the low rumble caused by vibrations from the wind on December 1, NASA said.

You can hear the audio in the video above. Because most people won't readily have access to these items, NASA also has included a higher frequency version of the clip that makes it audible when played on a laptop or smartphone's speakers.

It's been less than two weeks since InSight touched down on the surface of the Red Planet, but it is already sending back fantastic things for us to marvel at. Because wind gusts can trick the seismometer, the lander is equipped with an air pressure sensor to isolate that background noise. The sounds were recorded by an air pressure sensor inside the lander that is part of a weather station, as well as the seismometer on the deck of the spacecraft.

"We're all still on a high from the landing last week. and here we are less than two weeks after landing, and we've already got some unbelievable new science", said NASA's Lori Glaze, acting director of planetary science.

The 1976 Viking landers on Mars picked up spacecraft shaking caused by wind, but it would be a stretch to consider it sound, said InSight's lead scientist, Bruce Banerdt, of JPL in Pasadena, California.

'The solar panels on the lander's sides are flawless acoustic receivers, ' Prof Pike said.

An upcoming mission, the Mars 2020 rover, will have two microphones on board for clearer sound recording.
