The Sounds of Mars! - Coming Soon

With apologies to Arthur C. Clarke!

NASA's Perseverance rover is due to touch down on Mars on Feb 18th 2021. It is fitted with a couple of microphones. You'll be able to listen to the sounds from the Red Planet assuming it gets there in one piece. I suppose if it crashes that might make an interesting sound as well. Not one we want to hear, though.
