What’s that sound? A ‘Marsquake’ heard by Nasa

"Out of more than 100 events detected to date, about 21 are strongly considered to be quakes".

The instrument was created to listen for quakes on Mars, known as marsquakes.

In an interview with The Telegraph, Green said that the upcoming robotic missions to Mars, one headed by NASA and the other by its European counterpart ESA, are very likely to yield the desired results: the confirmation that there is life elsewhere in the Universe.

Far below the human range of hearing, these sonifications were sped up and "slightly processed" to make them audible through headphones. "The remainder could be quakes as well, but the science team hasn't ruled out other causes". The study on the quakes suggests that the crust of the Red Planet is similar to the blend of the Earth's and the Moon's crust. The Moon's crust, however, stays damaged and the sound waves scatter for several minutes, unlike Earth's crust where the waves can travel uninterrupted.

Unlike Earth's rambunctious surface (overpowered by the seismic noise of oceans and weather), the Red Planet is extremely quiet, allowis SEIS to pick up even the faintest rumbles from within.

Grab your headphones: NASA shared two more seismic events from the surface of Mars.

There are several possible explanations for them, such as parts of the seismometer expanding and contracting, while a ticking sound could be due to heat loss, like when a auto engine is turned off and begins to cool.

"You can hear a number of these 'dinks and donks, ' recorded just after sundown on July 16, 2019 (Sol 226)".

"It's been exciting, especially in the beginning, hearing the first vibrations from the lander", said InSight science team member Dr. Constantinos Charalambous, a researcher at Imperial College London.
