InSight lander records eerie sounds on Mars

NASA scientists have released new audio clips of the otherworldly sounds picked up on the Martian surface.
While we have long been treated to stunning photographs taken on and above the surface of Mars, audio samples from the Red Planet tend to be few and far between.

These latest recordings, which were made using the InSight lander's seismometer, feature sonifications of the seismic 'noise' picked up back on March 6, 2019.
The audio has been enhanced as otherwise it would be too quiet for our ears to hear.

According to NASA, the audio was produced by "wind gusts, InSight's robotic arm moving around and 'dinks and donks' - friction caused by parts inside the seismometer moving against each other as the temperature changes."

You can listen to the clips below (headphones are advised). The audio starts at around 00:25s.

That was cool. I was hoping the sound was anomalous but should have known better
