What does it sound like on Mars?

I wonder if they packed any microphones to record at least the thunderstorms?

and they just landed safely for those who missed that! :sunglasses:

Yep, well done Curiosity, an astonishing achievement :stuck_out_tongue:

I would imagine that it’d be quieter than here on Earth, due to the thinner atmosphere.

Does that mean that sound would actually propagate more slowly thru
a thinner medium?

Would sound vibrations take a longer amount of time to get from point A to point B?

Also there was no traffic, now there are two cars zooming about the place, one with a plutonium-238 battery. :laughing:

It depends on the type of gas, density and temperature. Temperatures vary wildly on mars and the atmosphere is mainly Carbon Dioxide.

I reckon it would sound exactly like my tinnitus … :confused:

Turn around 180° and you have phase inverted the dang noise! :sunglasses:

If it doesn’t sound like this … I ain’t going!
