LANL: Listen To A Dust Devil On Mars

When a dust devil — nearly 400 feet tall — passed directly over the Perseverance rover on Mars, a team of researchers on Earth recorded its sound. The eerie whooshing was captured for the first time ever thanks to the microphone on the SuperCam instrument developed at Los Alamos National Laboratory. On the new episode of “Mars Technica,” Baptiste Chide discusses what they learned, and just how lucky they were to capture this audio. Click to listen to the latest episode. Courtesy LANL
