Mars Rover Launch
#1
Mars Rover Launch
In just under half an hour, NASA will launch the Perseverance rover. In addition to the usual array of scientific instruments onboard, this one also has a microphone. So, if all goes well, we’ll get to hear what Mars sounds like.

It is my fondest wish that when the microphone is switched on, the first sound we here is, ‘GET THAT THING THE HELL OFF MY LAWN!!’

NASA had a contest that challenged school kids to image Huygens' landing on Titan. The winner was a picture of it being dragged away by two ... things. Hilarious

Thanks for posting the link. I'm watching the launch program now.  Great

I’m sure NASA have plans to augment and amplify any sounds that are picked up. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have equipped it with a microphone in the first place.

The overwhelming majority of the photographs we get from space are enhanced for clarity, colour-corrected and so on. I don’t imagine this will be any different.

I watched the feed and was looking at the chat box, always amazed at the ignorance of some of the comments, like "I hope the astronauts are ok" or "why is there smoke coming off it, is it on fire?"
I would think that if the go to the trouble of watching it they should have some understanding about what they are seeing.
The meek shall inherit the Earth, the rest of us will fly to the stars.

Never underestimate the power of very stupid people in large groups

Arguing with an engineer is like wrestling with a pig in mud ..... after a while you realise that the pig likes it!
