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.
Goddamn, it’s like something out of a Ridley Scott movie.

How long before crazies like Richard Hoagland are spinning this into some kind of occult symbolism?
Looks an awful lot like sperm and egg.
Or an alien owl face.
The processor in this:
Is also the processor in this:
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.
Y'all know that NASA stuff runs Linux, doncha?
If you want to know what it sounds like to drive around on Mars for 16 minutes, you need to check out this story. My advice? Scroll down and check out the 90-second highlight reel instead. Wonder if Ridley will use this kinda stuff to update The Martian.
