Listen to the first sounds from Mars

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

However, the sensitive seismometer and air pressure sensor still awaiting deployment detected vibrations.

InSight will act as a giant ear on Mars that will measure any sound or pressure fluctuations of the wind, earthquakes, tectonic movement or volcanism.

New images from NASA's Mars InSight lander show its robotic arm is ready to do some lifting. "But one of the things our mission is dedicated to is measuring motion on Mars, and naturally that includes motion caused by sound waves", Bruce Banerdt, the InSight principal investigator at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said in a statement. The U.S. space agency released an audio sample featuring the winds from the surface of the Red Planet.

Republicans prepare to move ahead with lame-duck session
Judges could block the proposals if they become law by issuing temporary injunctions, which could last the duration of the cases. Robin Vos, the speaker of the Assembly, accused Democrats of fanning hysteria and exaggerating the effects of the bills.

A version of the sounds was altered to be more perceptible to the human ears, according to Nasa.

InSight landed on Mars November 26 after seven months and 300 million miles en route. Back in the 1980s, two Soviet spacecraft, Venera 13 and Venera 14, recorded sounds from the surface of Venus.

What's even more exciting about InSight's fascinating discovery is that the NASA team were not even planning on capturing the previously unheard wind.

The noise was produced due to the air blowing over the solar panels of the InSight lander as well as the motion of the spacecraft.

With the lander, NASA hopes to study the "vital signs" of Earth's neighboring planet, including its "pulse" (seismology), "temperature" (heat flow), and "reflexes" (precision tracking).

The first image the lander sent back right after it made its successful landing was obstructed and hard to make out because the lens cap was still on the camera but with the cap off the photos are far more clear now.

Upon the landing of Insight, JPL director Michael Watkins said, "Every Mars landing is daunting, but now with InSight safely on the surface we get to do a unique kind of science on Mars".

The lander is also sharing numerous photos on its Twitter account and sharing information about its progress on Mars.
