NASA has published a record of wind noise on Mars 

This soundtrack appeared for the first time.

Sound recorded by the American spacecraft InSight. On December 1, his sensors recorded, as noted in the NASA report , a “low-frequency roar caused by gusts of wind,” blowing from northwest to southeast at a speed of 5 to 7 meters per second.

The direction of these winds coincided with the direction of the dust vortices that scientists observed from orbit. The representative of the team of the device explained that the sound recording was unplanned, but in general the project is studying the movement on Mars, and often this includes the study of sound waves.

InSight sat on the surface of Mars only at the end of November.
