NASA recently released the audio of its Perseverance rover crunching on the surface of Martian land, bringing a new dimension to the exploration of Mars.
Perseverance is heard ringing, roaring and squeaking as the six metal wheels roll over the rocks. The rover rolled approximately 27.3 meters (90 feet) on March 7, which was the 16th Martian day that Perseverance spent on the Red Planet (Sol 16).
“That’s the sound of me driving over Martian rocks. This is the first time we’ve captured sounds while driving on Mars,” the official Twitter account of the rover wrote while sharing the audio recording.
