Scientists create soundtracks for the 5,000th Mars Sunrise captured at NASA's Robotic Rover Opportunity and create two-minute music using data sound technology.
The researchers at Anglia Ruskin University and Exeter University scanned the picture one pixel from left to right, viewed the brightness and color information, and combined it with the terrain altitude to create the music.
They used algorithms to specify a specific pitch and melody for each element.
Quiet and slow harmonies are the result of a dark background, and the sonic processing of bright sun disks produces bright, high tones in the middle of the song.
A work titled Mars Soundscapes will be released November 13 at the Supercomputing SC18 Conference in Dallas, USA.
The researchers enjoy the sunrise experience on Mars because both the conventional speakers and the vibration transducer are used to allow the audience to feel the vibrations by hand.
Opportunity is Robot Rover, which has provided photograph data to NASA's Mars since 2004. Earlier this year, communications were interrupted due to dust storms.
Scientists hope to resume function later this year.
