Sound of wind blowing on the Martian surface.Last week NASA's InSight lander reached the planet Mars in our solar system and landed in the Elysium Planitia region of the planet.
InSight lander will be drilling a hole in the rocks to analyse the subsurface soil and rock compositions which will be of great scientific value to the scientists involved in this exploration work.
Meanwhile the air pressure sensor and seismometer mounted on it, which are capable of detecting the minute variations as the wind rolls over, have actually recorded the first audio of wind blowing on the Martian surface.
The sensors on the InSight lander captured these haunting low rumbles as on 1st Dec, 2018, caused by vibrations from the wind, estimated to be blowing between 18 to 25 km/hr from Martian northwest to southeast.
The sound of winds on Mars can be heard in the video released by Jet Propulsion Laboratory, US. The link is -
I found it interesting and thought to share with the members here.
