NASA's InSight lander 'hears' Martian winds

@NASA
NASA's InSight lander, which touched down on Mars last month, has provided the first-ever "sounds" of Martian wind on the Red Planet. InSight sensors captured a haunting low rumble caused by vibrations from the wind, estimated to be blowing between 10 to 15 miles per hour on December 1, NASA said. 

According to NASA, two very sensitive sensors on the spacecraft detected these wind vibrations. The two instruments recorded the wind noise in different ways. 

The air pressure sensor, which will collect meteorological data, recorded these air vibrations directly. The seismometer recorded lander vibrations caused by the wind moving over the spacecraft's solar panels. 

InSight landed safely at Elysium Planitia on Mars on November 26, kicking off a two-year mission to explore the deep interior of the Red Planet.
