Have you ever wondered what Planet Mars sounds like?
This new video by NASA features the entire trip of the Mars Opportunity Rover including real sound from the Red Planet. And it’s just so damn spooky.
But is this really the sounds of Mars? Or are these the vibrational measurements from the rover’s accelerometer? In this case these sounds would not be the real sounds of Mars like if they had set up a microphone and just hit record.
And what makes it even more disappointing was that the Mars Polar Lander actually did have a microphone on it, so we could have heard the sounds from Mars if that one hadn’t failed.
In the mean time discover real, crazy and spooky sounds of space here!
Eh. I imagine there would not be much sound anyway because of the thin atmosphere. If you did pick anything up, well, wind is wind.
