(PARABNORMAL NEWS) — If you’ve ever wanted to hear what the impact of a meteoroid sounds like, NASA has detected seismic and acoustic waves from four space rocks that crashed on Mars in 2020 and 2021.
A seismometer on the InSight lander picked up the signals for the first time.
One last September exploded into at least three pieces that left craters behind. NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter flew over the impact site to confirm the location and documented three darkened spots on the surface.
Detecting meteoroids is more probable on Mars because the atmosphere is just 1% as thick as it is on Earth.
