    Cool. Listen through link.

    A meteoroid crashed into Mars, and NASA recorded the odd sound it made. Have a listen

    For the first time, NASA has captured the weird sound of a meteoroid sailing through another planet’s atmosphere and crashing to the ground.
    The recording,


    Lasting only about 3 seconds, the sound begins with a hiss — the rock flying through the sky — and ends with “bloops.”


    “It was the first time the sound of a meteoroid impact was captured occurring on another planet, and it might not be what you expect,” the lab reports.




    NASA reports these three craters were formed Sept. 5, 2021, by a meteoroid impact on Mars and it was “the first to be detected by NASA’s InSight.”

    “You hear three ‘bloops’ representing distinct moments of the impact: the meteoroid entering Mars’ atmosphere, exploding into pieces, and striking the ground. The peculiar sound is caused by an atmospheric effect that’s also been observed in deserts on Earth, where lower-pitched sounds arrive before high-pitched sounds.”
