Nice! I actually heard the wind video played on the radio yesterday. Itś great to know that NASA and space exploration are back in the public eye.

Does the video actually provide the sound of the wind or is it the visualization of how they are collecting the evidence through the seismometers that I saw in the video? I listened twice hoping to hear the wind.... but didn't. It could be too much noise in my classroom or just that background hum of the kids, but I didn't hear it.
I really LIKED the visualization of how the robot unfolded the solar wings and also how it placed the seismometer on the ground. I will def. use this video after Christmas when we start our Space unit. Thanks for sharing.

@Jeanine-Gelhaus My understanding is the sound has been 'enhanced' so we can hear it. There is sound, but probably got lost in the buzz of the classroom. With only 1% of the atmosphere of Earth, there aren't really enough molecules to transmit sound very effectively. A human talking at normal volume would be no more than a whisper. So, long story short, these are the sounds of Mars, just louder.
