    HOLEEE SHIT.

    I had not heard that Perseverance has a microphone onboard. So this is the first time we will actually be able to hear sounds on another planet. Sure, it will probably just be wind, but... holy shit!

    This is the module on the rover to test how spacesuit materials are affected by Mars.

    If you can spot the Easter Egg, then you’ll know the name of the module.

    How long before crazies like Richard Hoagland are spinning this into some kind of occult symbolism?

    that's pretty much true for all mission critical CPUs. They use older design radiation hardened devices.

    Still, it annoys me there's a mac crawling around mars.

    Meh. If it was WinDoze based, they'd need to restart the rover twice a day to clear the errors.
