NASA unveiled the recording of wind noise on Mars

View of robotic arm

The air pressure sensor, part of the Auxiliary Payload Sensor Subsystem (APSS), which will collect meteorological data, recorded these air vibrations directly.

Ever wondered what it sounds like to be on the surface of Mars?

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.

NASA said that the mission engineers planned to move the seismometer from the lander on to the ground next to it.

Of the 1,300 or so absentee ballot requests Bladen County received, Dowless turned in nearly half of those on behalf of voters. Specifically there are allegations in Bladen County that absentee ballots were illegally stacked in favor of Harris.

Seismograph and pressure sensors of the spacecraft InSight that in late November, successfully landed on the red planet, recorded by a vibration of the wind speed which ranged from 16 to 24 kilometres per hour, - up. It will explore the planet's deep interior and analyze seismic activity or "marsquakes". It will also record the sound of the instrument's laser as it zaps different materials, helping to identify the material based on the sound it makes.

"The InSight lander acts like a giant ear", said Tom Pike, InSight science team member and the sensor designer at Imperial College London. "When we looked at the direction of the lander vibrations coming from the solar panels, it matches the expected wind direction at our landing site". The lander will also measure the tectonic activity and meteorite impacts on Mars. It's like InSight is cupping its ears and hearing the Mars wind beating on it.

With the lander, NASA hopes to study the "vital signs" of Earth's neighboring planet, including its "pulse" (seismology), "temperature" (heat flow), and "reflexes" (precision tracking). Nicknamed WALL-E and EVE after the Pixar movie's stars, the MarCO sats followed the InSight lander for 7 Months and productively transmitted the data of its Mars landing back in merely 8 Min to mission control, utilizing experimental antennas and radios.

More images from InSight's arm were scheduled to come down this past weekend.
