the sound was out of this world

Image result for american flag on the moon in the solar wind nasa

i remember being glued to the tv and radio during the moon flights
one picture that sticks in my brain is
the one where the astronaut has stuck the american flag in the moon ground
the moon solar wind is making the flag flutter
in a slow motion way
but there was no sound with it

it is amazing to me that the space folks can lift off rockets to outer space
then land parts of it back on earth
onto a small area like a barge
like in a space movie

that happened last week when we were walking above the beach
see my blog on that what a way to go
then came the sonic boom later that i thought maybe was an earthquake
or something like that
it was the rocket landing back on earth just a few miles away
this happened this week

this is the recording from the insight lander on mars
it has recordings to monitor marsquakes
as the wind blows across sensors and solar panels you can hear the wind
thought to be about 10-15 mph

i listened with earphones and after the inital introductions i turned up  the sound as loud as i could
i swear i could feel my laptop and earphones vibrating in the wind
i felt like i was there

i also turned off all the lights in the condo and listened again
mesmerizing yes mesmerizing it was
i pretended i was there sitting in the dark
on mars
listening to the howling martian wind

its nice to escape this world with all our problems
just take a few seconds to forget about it

each time i did it i realized this was sound from our nearest planet millions of miles away
being transmitted via the internet to my laptop
then up into my earphones

just like i could be mesmerized with the moon solar wind on that american flag years ago
i am mesmerized by this mars solar wind

its an out of this world experience

who would have thunk it
