Damn it! I told you to turn off the taps properly. That’s why we have no water left


yeabutwhythough

Mars needs a plumber


twinsynth

Itsame Marzeo!


Fosterbudding1

Plumber here. Sounds like an electric water heater with sediment built up on the heating elements. Mars needs a new heater.


say_it_aint_slow

What would be the bill for something like that? Can you patch it up until tax returns come in next year?


Fosterbudding1

You can flush it as long as the elements are still good. And if it ain’t leaking. Don’t spend the money to fix it!!


MySecondShadow

Angry red plumbers!


angryboxes

I can’t tell if I’m intrigued or terrified.


Ace-a-Nova1

[So this sound is very similar to noises produced by sand dunes.](https://youtu.be/4mbypyJjqhk) [“Some researchers have carefully examined the textures and surfaces of booming sands and concluded that the sand grains needed to be highly polished and moderately well rounded. This high degree of polishing, sphericity and sorting is produced in certain dune settings as grains saltate into each other, each impact further rounding and polishing grains.”](https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/what-are-quotbooming-sand/)

The martians discovered Reddit, they probably think there is no hope left for humans


DmitryMate

ultratunaman

They're not restless. They're just hoping to God Leo Wong doesn't go up there in 1000 years time.

gusmeowmeow

can we just appreciate for a second that we live in a time when we can be witness to not just clear video but hi-res audio of another freaken planet


xantub

And yet all UFO 'sightings' are still blurry as hell in 2021.


DrHoflich

Well if it was identifiable, it wouldn’t be a UFO.


themasonking

When was the last time a recent UFO photo was captured or got attention?


Critical_Paper8447

And the UAP Task Force budget was worked into the Covid bill this past summer. There's been alot of mainstream media news coverage on the subject all year. Alot was overshadowed by covid but it got alot if attention in July and August of this year. Edit: changed Pand to And

mibishibi

That poor Alot was overshadowed by covid. At least it's still better at swimming than Michael Phelps


ReluctantSlayer

Quite recently. [2019 was busy.](https://abcnews.go.com/US/ufo-sightings-north-america-jumped-6000-2019/story?id=68145474) US Gov [has even released ~~extensive~~ official paperwork regarding UAP.](https://www.cnn.com/2021/06/27/politics/ufos-uap-extraterrestrial-life/index.html) Edit: Ok. Maybe that was the wrong word. Lol It was redacted right?


Coopman41

tomerjm

That's just standard starship coating. How else can they 'move' in sheer defiance to the laws of physics as we know them..? It really is on us for being backwards and crude.


Thrannn

and yet we cant print a page of paper without the printer jamming or expecting me to refil the ink every 3 minutes


BigBadBill84

Printers are the only equipment that hasn’t changed since 1990


intashu

Not true, they've evolved immensely in the past 30 years.... to ensure they run out of ink sooner, even when not in use! and new smart technology to ensure that should you ever run out of magenta or cyan that it absolutly under no circumstances will continue to print a black and white document.


xantub

You're still using inkjet? Get a laser printer and forget about it!


Lily_beanz

And yet we can’t scan images if the color ink runs out 😱


Sleepwalks

So I have no opinion on UFO stuff, but this being the catch point always has bothered me. Like... you ever tried to take a pic of a plane in the sky with a phone? I mean, there's a lot of zoom involved, so the blurriness/graininess of the photos is the one thing that doesn't bother me.


user5918

There’s actually a lot of good ufo footage it just kinda gets called fake and buried beneath actually fake/false sightings


Eons_of_Ions

Sounds like the popcorn is about done in the microwave


Due_Strike_457

Yeah, gonna burn soon


kossy23

What about rain dropping on the rover structure? I know there is no rain but....sounds like it. Or tiny rocks hitting the rover?


alrinstolda

Sounds like metal expanding as it warms to me - but yeah, the body of the rover making noise.


Jhjsjhjshs

Oh yeah that’s actually more reasonable


The-real-rick-c137

Yeah those sounds are too loud for them to be coming from a distance. It sounds like it can hear its own camera recording and the metal pinging from the sun, yet its cold on mars so it might be at a state where its kinda caught in this expanding/contracting point.


uberrob

This is the answer. Temperature differentials between the Martian ambient temperature and changes in temperature occurring inside the rover because of mechanical or electrical activity. Also, remember that the rover's microphone is, incredibly, an off-the-shelf product, not a special mic created by the lander engineers - so it's bound to have a few unexpected properties. The company, DPA, that made the microphone is, understandably, loving all the attention https://www.dpamicrophones.com/mars-rover


Praesumo

Turn off a hot car it sounds exactly the same. It's 100% the rovers own metal cooling off (maybe the sun just set?)


Jhjsjhjshs

Was thinking the same. I was thinking maybe an underground cave with water?


SKBrooke8

Sounds like the rain has almost stopped.


ViscousAssassin

I sense a good opportunity here...


LarryLongBoob

Somebody needs to sample this shit. Someone call Deltron right now


kontekisuto

It's the year 3030


zoltronzero

I want y'all to meet Deltron Zero, hero, not no small feat.


theonewhosmells

It's all heat in this day and age


solarcross

Softmachinepics

Neuromancer, perfect blend of technology and magic


ParkingSlide

Holy fuck I haven’t listened to Deltron in a long ass time. I mean at least not actual Deltron, I guess I still listen to Clint Eastwood… but still what a throwback. I know what I’m listening to in the shower tomorrow.


redmaniacs

Coming to you live from Eros Station.


DidIReallySayDat

Don't you dare be making any jump scare shit with this....


Dave5876

DRAGON_SNIPER

Sounds like drums


10andtwo

Drums in the deep


Jaden-YoungBlood

They are coming


XGREYXHURRICANE

They have a cave troll.


KrystalWulf

I need a 30 minute video of this. It's oddly calming.


jazberrycrunch

Yeah dude, it's the IRL version of snake jaz.


BillowyWave5228

Holy shit I just watched that episode


SunsGettinRealLow

I understood that reference


SKBrooke8

It’s like rain on a gutter


Smedusa

Perfect to listen while ironing your shirts.


stonewashedpotatoes

The rover’s tires are made of metal and essentially look like a metal tube. Fairly certain what you are hearing are the Rover’s tires rolling over the land on Mars. Edit: [video explaining sounds](https://youtu.be/GHenFGnixzU?t=1m50s) Edit #2: [This comment](https://www.reddit.com/r/oddlyterrifying/comments/qcgexg/strange_sounds_recorded_on_mars/hhi403e/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf&context=3) below sources and explains the sound. My oversight to linking the Rover’s sounds when OP’s video noted this audio was from Insight.


schizomorph

To me it sounds like this could be the expansion of parts of the craft picked up by the microphone through coupling. All the sounds seem to have the same formant which I believe is an indication that the sounds are being coupled to the mic. GoPros in their protective shell have some of this characteristic but the effect is not as strong.


Magnum_Moose

Sounds just like a car after having driven it and all the metal is cooling off


Kappachu

You're right about the Rover but this is Nasa [Insight Lander](https://lifeboat.com/blog.images/our-nasa-insight-lander-just-needs-some-nasa-national-aeronautics-and-space-administration.jpg). No tires, seems stationary.


11th-plague

It sounds like hollow or thin metal objects expanding in the sun and “pinging” like when the heat pipes first come on (no fluid needed to percolate nor cavitation).


contactright05

I hear this a lot, i have a door to my attic in my room and in summer mornings i hear the metal roof doing this, but this is just 3x higher pitch, so I'm guessing a smaller object is heating up


R1ght_b3hind_U

The martian atmosphere is thinner so stuff sounds higher


Homonomore

My “Martian atmosphere” is pretty thick so it comes out deeper. But if a smell.


ptrs_one

He who so smelteth, dealteth.


Lunar-Tales

That, or you have martians in your attic.


contactright05

Well, yeah, probably martians, they just get more active when it's warm, like lizards. Sometimes I hear some weird noises. Maybe it's proof that cats aren't from earth, because my cat spends a lot of time in the attic.


bobfossilsnipples

I wonder if the different gas composition and density of the atmosphere might modify the pitch somewhat too.


Hakesopp

Exactly what I thought of too.our metal roof in the morning when the sun hits it, and after it sets at night. Like little gnomes drumming up there.


flacarrara

And Mars temperature can be +27°C during the day, -133°C during the night.


kelvin_bot

27°C is equivalent to 80°F, which is 300K. --- ^(I'm a bot that converts temperature between two units humans can understand, then convert it to Kelvin for bots and physicists to understand)


Gonzo_Rick

I'm sure I'm too late to this old thread, but [here is a link](https://mars.nasa.gov/resources/24650/listen-to-nasas-insight-at-work-on-mars/?site=insight), straight from NASA's Ingenuity's "Multimedia" page, explaining what seems to be, while maybe not this exact clip, certainly part of the same wave file. No, it's not tires, as almost everyone else in this comments section, other than you, keeps saying and linking totally unrelated videos. It's audio of (or taken with) a seismometer being placed. The video linked goes through the entire wave file with text explaining every single little sound that happens.


Kappachu

Thank you for the link, that sums it up. Not alot of people verify information they get on the internet.


yeabutwhythough

Still Martian sounds though... cause... it’s on mars


Slick_vic805

Martians playing Pong on the Atari


BoiledCarrotsIGuess

What a legendary name for a band


tech405

Don’t they know the engine ticks when it’s cooling down?


SourSackAttack

You're right, from NASA Evening is also when peculiar sounds that the InSight team has nicknamed "dinks and donks" become more prevalent. The team knows they're coming from delicate parts within the seismometer expanding and contracting against one another and thinks heat loss may be the factor, similar to how a car engine "ticks" after it's turned off and begins cooling


senseofcalm

A big win for rationality and the scientific method. Tune in next week for a fresh segment of Internet Ignorance. We can all guess what phenomenon of which we know not better explains shit than science


bobrobon

Jesus, finally I found the ONE comment explaining what's going on here buried about 50 comments down under "lol aliens" and "lol rain". Thank you.


Diocletion-Jones

This was my first thought. It's the same sort of ticking sound the metal roof on my barn makes (although a lot slower) when the sun finally goes down over the hill after a hot day.


BeenusBurger

Sounds like something is dripping faster and faster


Bartender9719

Rain on a bunch of metal objects

Poverty_Princess

Lmfao so hard


shellshark1033

shortage in mom's spaghetti be hittin hard


RGBjank101

All I hear is wind and the metal rover expanding or contracting. Like when an engine cools after shutting it off.


OddPizza

Some Psychedelic Rock band is going to sample this. I can already imagine it as a long intro fading into actual drums or something.


rivencleft

I see you are also a Floyd fan.


Writerboi4

I think they posted about this on NASA twitter....its the onboard laser zapping into rock samples.


renshinkocha

Produced by Aphex Twin


drbiggles

Defeinitely got some [Xtal](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnTFKWAT-XE) and [Tha](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3G7JPTVVEQ) vibes from this. Sure it aint space ravers?


Toathar

Is this a aphex twin song?


JuicyBoxerz

Sounds like water dripping onto a pan or something.


TurkieNana3243

More Cowbell!!!!


loneert

Underground Martian rave party?


JoshChew96

Sounds like it's either the rover being buffeted by wind, or the temperature is rising/falling casing the metal to expand/contract slightly giving you the tiny popping sounds


SavageAutum

Alien out there playing with a bouncy ball on a metal pole in a driveway


Starlightgirl1998

Is this the ‘Donda’ you kids keep talking about?


SinCityNinja

Sounds like a cable slapping up against a flag pole


thekevino

sounds like the metal expanding in the heat of the sunlight


Cancercleave

Thats the sound of the rover wheels turning i think.


ChallengeAccording97

Natives are restless


The-real-rick-c137

It sounds like the rover is recording its own sounds?


Former-World3099

The backgound noise must be the Mars wind. The clanging is the rover.


1-1111-1110-1111

It sounds like when you turn the car engine off. It’s the sound of metal on the prob cooling after reentry…


Kagariim

Nice a new Tool song
