The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - - NATION & WORLD -

NASA’s new Mars lan­der has cap­tured the first sounds of the Mar­tian wind. The Jet Propul­sion Lab­o­ra­tory re­leased au­dio clips of the alien wind Fri­day. The low-fre­quency rum­blings were col­lected by the In­Sight lan­der dur­ing its first week of op­er­a­tions at Mars. The wind is es­ti­mated to be blow­ing 10 mph to 15 mph. These are the first sounds from Mars that are de­tectable by hu­man ears, ac­cord­ing to the re­searchers.
