What's that sound? A "Marsquake" heard by NASA

NASA's In Sight Mars Lander Captured Bizarre Sounds On The Red Planet

The InSight Lander has been placed on Mars to accurately record precise seismic readings, as well as provide 3D models of the planet's interior.

As for sending rovers to Mars, scientists may have discovered that there could be an active system of water underneath the surface of Mars, earlier this year.

NASA's InSight tool continues to gather information about the internal structure of Mars.

The InSight team has been able to figure out how to separate the quakes from other noises and has come to recognize other sounds on Mars.

InSight was equipped with a very sensitive seismometer called the Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure (SEIS), which can pick up vibrations as subtle as a breeze. With this seismometer, the vehicle can track how seismic waves on Mars travel through the planet.

Amazon and Disney in tug-of-war over Fire TV ads
Currently Hulu gives Roku about 15% of the subscription revenue from customers who signed up for the service through Roku. Since Disney has popular apps and is launching Disney+ next month, they seem hesitant to give up too much ad inventory.

Dr. Green also said that this will impact scientists as they will have even more questions to ask and solve. Dr Green said that the outcome about the discovery of life on the red planet will place a new set of questions before scientists to explore further. However, an quake could not be detected until April of this year. To date, more than 100 events have been detected, and only a fifth are considered to have been Marsquakes.

These events occurred on May 22, 2019 (the 173rd Martian day, or sol, of the mission) and July 25, 2019 (Sol 235). The first natural disaster was 3.7 and the second quake was 3.3. These sounds have mostly been heard during the evening. According to NASA, the sounds, which the agency referred to as "dinks and donks" may have been produced by the lander's body and equipment as it reacted to the change in temperature in its environment.

According to the researchers, the sounds of the earthquakes indicate that the crust of Mars is "a mixture of" earth and the moon's crust. Mars' surface is similar to the Moon's and the seismic waves can long for a minute or so.

The suite of geophysical instruments on InSight sounds like a doctor's bag, giving Mars its first "checkup" since the planet formed.

It's intensely impressive knowing that during this video, you are listening to the sounds emanating from another planet.
