Listen to Mars blowing in these first sounds of the Perseverance rover

These sounds are really otherworldly.

NASA’s rover Perseverance recorded 60 seconds of Martian sound on Saturday (February 20), just two days after its a picturesquely perfect touch in Crater Lake. The newly opened file, which contains the mechanical swirling of the rover and the rustling of the Red Planet’s breeze, is the first true sound ever recorded on the surface of a planet other than Earth.
