NASA Released Breathtaking New Images From The Surface Of Mars

The NASA InSight lander, which is supported by the UK Space Agency, has recorded a haunting, low rumble caused by vibrations from the wind. "When we looked at the direction of the lander vibrations coming from the solar panels, it matches the expected wind direction at our landing site".
After recently beaming back a selfie of its robotic arm raised in triumph, as the Inquisitr reported on Wednesday, the InSight Mars lander has snapped another photo of its 6-feet-long appendage.
This spectrogram shows the first data collected by one of the three sensors on InSight's short-period seismometer.
"It's a little like a flag waving in the wind", he added.
The sound of wind is easily recognizable to most people on Earth but for the first time the sound of wind on Mars has been released. These instruments will be the first ever to be robotically placed on the surface of another planet. The air pressure sensor detected the air vibrations directly while the seismometer recorded vibrations caused by the Martian wind blowing across InSight's solar panels.
But while the instruments on InSight can capture data in human-friendly frequencies, higher-pitched sounds don't travel well on Mars.
Two sensors picked up the vibrations: an air pressure sensor inside the lander and a seismometer on the lander's deck, awaiting to be deployed to the surface by InSight's robotic arm.
'It's like InSight is cupping its ears'. The air pressure sensor, part of the Auxiliary Payload Sensor Subsystem (APSS), which will collect meteorological data, recorded these air vibrations directly. It will explore the planet's deep interior and analyze seismic activity or "marsquakes".
InSight science team member Tom Pike says the lander acts like a giant ear as the solar panels respond to the wind. It still will detect the lander's movement, though channeled through the Martian surface.
In the meantime, the sounds of the Martian wind are a poignant reminder of just how far InSight has flown: more than 300 million miles (480 million kilometers), becoming only the eighth spacecraft to successfully touch down on the Red Planet.
A monk seal in Hawaii was photographed with an eel stuck up its nose - and you're going to be obsessed with it. The removal process took less than a minute and while the seal was uninjured, the eel wasn't so lucky.
Barr later worked as a corporate general counsel and is now of counsel at a prominent worldwide law firm, Kirkland & Ellis LLP. Trump heavily derided Mueller's team earlier this year for being comprised of many registered Democrats and Democratic donors.
The bill would also give lawmakers, rather than the attorney general, the power to decide how to spend settlement money. Republicans who control the Wisconsin Assembly have passed a lame-duck bill enacting a Medicaid work requirement.

According to police, someone phoned in a threat stating there were five bombs placed throughout Time Warner Center. CNN anchor Don Lemon told his Twitter followers the studio had been evacuated in the middle of recording his show.
But he says Liverpool must beat Bournemouth to pile the pressure on them should they slip up on Saturday evening. I expect them to edge this one, too - but Bournemouth can't be underestimated this season.
He posted a career-high.304 batting average with a career-low strikeout mark to go with 178 hits, 10 homers and 63 RBIs. Crawford, the 13th pick in the 2013 Major League Baseball draft, played 49 games for the Phillies previous year .
Sadly, Nintendo didn't have anything else to reveal about the new character - no in game footage, no screenshots and no hints. The first is Piranha Plant , but there's more to getting this character then just putting in your credit card number.
China promises prompt action on US trade pact
China is fully confident that it can reach a trade deal with the US within the 90 days set for talks, Gao said. Trump also warned this week of more tariffs if the two sides could not resolve their differences.
