On December 1, 2018, NASA's InSight lander, which hit November 26, on Mars, gave the first ever air filings on the planet Mars.
The centers of space space found an exciting low noise that was caused by swimming pool of # The wind to read from 10 to 15 million hours (6-24 km / h) from northwest to southeast. The winds consistent with the direction of textile strain in the area that was evaluated by birot.

Bruce Banerdt is chief engineer of InSight in NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California. Bander said in a statement:
The recording of this audio was an unplanned treatment. But one of things is our mission dedicated to # 39; The mingling on Mars, and of course, the motion is caused by sound waves.
InSight (which stands for Interiors Exploration using Seismic Research, Geodesy and Heat Transport) is not a rover; It was designed to stay in one place and to study in a deep interior in Marsum. NASA said:
A two-year mission of InSight will be to study the Deep Interiors of Mars to learn how to form all heaven's walls with filling surfaces, including earth and moon.
How did InSight find that the wind sounds? Here is an explanation of NASA:
Two very sensitive sensors in space found in these wind vibes: an air pressure sensor in & # 39; the lander and a seismometer sitting on a plate of # Wait for landing, wait for the use of InSight robotics arm. The two instruments register the wind speed in different ways. The Air Pressure Sensor, part of the Auxiliary Payload Sensor Subsystem, which collects meteorological data, has recorded these aircraft directly. The seismometer included landing expectations that are caused by the wind over the solar panel of space in & # 39; The space is, each of which is 7 feet (2.2 meters) silver and sticks from the & nbsp; & nbsp; side of & quot; the lander or more than a few ears.
Tom Pike is an intelligence team member and sensor designer at Imperial College London. He said:
The landscape of InSight is like a great ear. The sun panels respond to the following pages on pressure fluctuations of & nbsp; the wind. It is like InSight is the ears and listening to the marshmallow on the hard. If we are in & # 39; direction of & # 39; and can see the landings of solar panels, it matches the expected wind direction at our location.
Pike compared the effect to a flag in the wind. If a flag tastes the wind, there is air in the air that drops the human ear as flap.
