Before that happens, NASA has to prepare the robot to begin using its powerful instruments. and in doing so the Jet Propulsion Laboratory actually captured the sounds of wind whipping across the dusty Martian surface.
    In a new video, JPL explains that InSight's onboard seismometer began to detect vibrations. The team ultimately determined that the vibrations were the...
