Researchers recorded the "song" of dawn on Mars


Using the sonication method (convert data to audio), researchers from the University of England Ruskin created a soundtrack for the 5000-year-old Dawn, photographed by Opportunity Rover. This writes Eurek Alert.

In order to take a snapshot of music, researchers scanned it from right to left of pixels, matching colors and brightness with information about the Mars Terrain release. Then, they used algorithms that assign each tone a certain tone or melody. For example, a quiet and slow sound corresponds to a darker background, and the loud and loud sounds a sunbathing.

"Image Condensation is a truly flexible method of investigating scientific data, and it can be used in different areas, from studying certain characteristics of the planet's surfaces and atmosphere to analyze weather changes or to detect volcanic eruptions," said Dr. Domenico Vicinza of the University of England Ruskin.

Remember, Opportunity robbers did not contact us since June 10, 2018, when a severe dust storm began on Mars, the atmosphere's transparency decreased and the device could not load its solar panels.

Now the storm has fallen and the atmosphere is normal, but the rover is still in hibernation. According to NASA, the rover solar panels are too contaminated with sand and dust.
