NASA's InSight lander "hears" Martian winds

InSight is designed to study the interior of Mars like never before using seismology instruments to detect quakes and a self-hammering mole to measure heat escape from the planet's crust

NASA Recorded the Sounds of Mars (And It's Almost All Creepy Bass)

NASA just announced it has heard the first-ever "sounds" of wind on Mars.

NASA estimates the winds were blowing slowly at around "5 to 7 meters a second" from the northwest to the southeast of the surface of the planet on December 1.

New images from NASA's Mars InSight lander show its robotic arm is ready to do some lifting. Hindustan Times delivers the news across all social media platforms, on the web, and at your doorstep.

Grace Millane: New Zealand police to charge man with murder of backpacker
New Zealand police confirmed they are now treating British backpacker Grace Millane's (pictured) disappearance as a homicide. Police later said they had spoken to the man and that he was a "person of interest", although he was not held in custody.

In the video posted on Twitter, NASA said mission engineers will eventually move the seismometer off the lander and onto the ground. These are the first sounds from Mars that are detectible by human ears, according to the researchers. The air pressure sensor, part of the Auxiliary Payload Sensor Subsystem (APSS), which will collect meteorological data, recorded these air vibrations directly.

InSight's seismometer and another sensor picked up the noise, and it was not planned. It's like InSight is cupping its ears and hearing the Mars wind beating on it.

As reported InSight spacecraft landed on the surface Марса26 November.

The audio was captured by two different pieces of state of the art, hyper sensitive recording equipment aboard the lander.

Former FBI chief Comey arrives for GOP interview
He expanded, "The entire goal of this investigation is to cast aspersions on the real investigation, which is Mueller". Comey, who appeared under subpoena, announced after the meeting that he would return for more questioning December 17.

This is the only phase of the mission during which the seismometer, called the Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure SEIS, will be capable of detecting vibrations generated directly by the lander. The lander will measure whether tremors have the same effect as earthquakes.

"We're all still on a high from the landing last week. and here we are less than two weeks after landing, and we've already got some awesome new science", said NASA's Lori Glaze, acting director of planetary science.

NASA sent microphones to Mars on the Mars Polar Lander spacecraft in 1999, which crashed during its landing attempt, and on the Phoenix Mars lander; that instrument was left turned off, however, because it could have caused problems during landing.

John Kelly interviewed by Mueller's team and expected to quit
Kelly, a strong-willed former military commander, imposed a measure of discipline on Trump's free-wheeling, tumultuous presidency. Kelly, a retired four-star Marine, has always been criticized by some Trump insiders for lacking the necessary political acumen.
