They released a recording of Martian wind sort of. It's a
raised octave recording of vibrations of the solar panels.
I would love the idea of logging into the NASA web page
you could listen to Martian "music" such as flutes, bells
chimes being activated by the Martian
Now I understand the density of the atmosphere there is
a fraction of what it is on Earth but with a little work we
could rig something that would do the job.
Mars singing to us.

We could do better than this. [doctorremulac3, Dec 09 2018]
(?) The new style.
Putting the "Aaaargh!" in "architecture". [doctorremulac3, Dec 11 2018]
||This would be possible, but if you want the sound of a cold, lifeless wind blowing through an empty, desolate landscape, why not just set up a microphone in Milton Keynes ?
||Who would want to steal Milton Keynes ? Even the Ferengi would want substantial payment to take it away.
||Better yet would be a mechanical speaking machine,
placed onto the back of one of one of those
Strandbeast walking machines. And keep it a secret
as to how it got there.
||Looked up Milton Keynes. Looks like you guys are
suffering from same architectural disease we are
over here, at least in the one development
pictured. (see link) This new random parts look. No
rhyme or reason, no congruity, no theme, just a
bunch of un-related architectural elements that
looked like they were put in a box, shaken up and
thrown against the wall. "OK boys, let's build this!".
||We're also suffering from the "gaily painted,
tastefully offset storage containers" look.
||I know what they're trying to do, they're trying to
move mid century minimalist architecture into the
next step, except taking minimalist and making it
really busy, complicated and un-pleasing to the
eye sort of looses the idea of minimalist.
||And I understandthere are no rules in art, that's
what makes it great. If something works while
breaking the rules, that's awesome. This doesn't.
||// suffering from same architectural disease //
||Would that be "Buildings designed by and for architects to show to other architects how clever and innovative they are, rather than by the people who have to live and work in the environment" Syndrome ?
||What percentage of architects actually live (or would consider living) in their own constructions ?
||Does anybody know what this crapitectural style is
called? I look up "contemporary architecture" and get
a bunch of mid century modern stuff, a style that
started in the 1950s.
||It's like they're so ashamed of it they didn't even
bother to give it a name.
