The new photos offer a more detailed look at the lander's surroundings, while also showing a clearer view of the InSight scientific instruments, now resting on the probe's deck. The seismometer recording is only possible during these early stages of InSight's mission because once it's placed onto the Martian surface, a dome will protect it from wind and scientists will actively filter out vibrational noise originating from the lander.
'It is just awesome to hear the first ever sounds from Mars'.
Get your headphones and subwoofers ready: NASA unveiled its new Sounds of Mars recording and it's almost all bass.
These vibrations were detected by an ultra-sensitive seismometer developed in the United Kingdom and an air pressure sensor sitting on the lander's deck.
"Humans are multisensor people, and now we have two of our sensors turned on with this mission", with both audio and visual data streaming back to Earth, Don Banfield, the science lead for the air pressure sensor, said during the news conference. What has been captured is the sound of the red planet - distinct, low, humming winds.
'The solar panels on the lander's sides are ideal acoustic receivers, ' Prof Pike said.

New audio has been released from the surface of Mars, and the sound is more hauntingly familiar than you might expect.
The Nasa said in an official statement that its InSight sensor recorded a low frequency wind on Mars blowing 10 to 15 miles per hour (5 to 7 meters a second). But InSight is not equipped with a microphone, rather, the sound was detected by sensors and a seismometer to measure sound waves.
"Capturing this audio was an unplanned treat", said Bruce Banerdt, a NASA investigator of the mission.
NASA's InSight lander, which touched down on Mars last month, has provided the first-ever "sounds" of Martian wind on the Red Planet. First, the raw sample from the seismometer. For now, it's recording vibrational data that scientists later will be able to use to cancel out noise from the lander when SEIS is on the surface, allowing them to detect better actual marsquakes. It's like InSight is cupping its ears.
