NASA landing gear gains strange pulses on Mars

NASA's InSight landing gear (NASA) detected a total of more than 100 pulses on the planet, of which 21 were strong like earthquakes.

JPL's NASA Research Department (JPL) said on October 1 that the remaining impulses could also be earthquakes, but the JPL team did not say what caused them. on.

Equipped with a deep floor seismometer (SEIS) , InSight is capable of capturing light pulses like a breeze. Scientists hope that through the study to clarify the seismic movements in the core of Mars, the mystery of the deep structure inside the planet will be revealed for the first time.

SEIS recorded the first shockwave like an earthquake on April 23, 2019, after InSight landed on the Red Planet in November 2018. Because the volume of the recorded pulses is below the human hearing threshold, the scientists have stimulated them to hear them using headphones.
