NASA's InSight mission recently launched on Mars and other mission before it is the lander is equipped with a camera and has sent some photos of a red planet. But InSight is also a few instruments that make it possible that no one has ever had: what Mars is like:
Insight's air pressure sensor re-recording the sound of the wind sensor and the seismometer recorded the sounds of & # 39; the solar panels of land, vibrating when Martian winds were over them.
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 aerial sensor, part of the Auxiliary Payload Sensor Subsystem (APSS), collects meteorological data, has recorded these aerial vibrations 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.
The sounds are well heard with a good head hip.
