The first alien sounds of Mars are so damn spooky

Illustration for article titled The first alien sounds of Mars are so damn spooky

This is a great video that shows the entire trip of the Mars Opportunity Rover on one side while tracking the trip on the red planet on the other. It’s cool to know where Curiosity has gone and what it has seen but perhaps the craziest thing of the video is hearing the noise of the planet. It’s just so damn freaky.

Saying that this is “the noise of the planet” as it may lead people to believe this is natural sounds occurring in the martian atmosphere when in fact it’s a synthetic sound created to give a clue to how rough the terrain is.
