NASA's Perseverance rover recorded 60 seconds of Martian sound on Saturday (Feb. 20), just two days after its picture-perfect touchdown inside Jezero Crater.

The newly released file, which features mechanical whirring from the rover and the rustle of a Red Planet breeze, is the first true audio ever captured on the surface of a planet other than Earth.

The audio was unveiled during that briefing, as was jaw-dropping video Perseverance captured during its Feb.

Epic video: Watch the Perseverance rover land on Mars.

Live updates: NASA's Perseverance Mars rover mission.

Perseverance, the heart of NASA's $2.7 billion Mars 2020 mission, carries a second mic as well — one built into its rock-zapping SuperCam instrument. .

There are no guarantees, however; the EDL mic was not optimized for use on the harsh, frigid Martian surface, so it's unclear how long it will last, Gruel told last week.

One, an instrument called MOXIE ("Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization Experiment"), is designed to generate oxygen from the thin, carbon dioxide-dominated Martian atmosphere.

Ingenuity's test campaign will be the first big activity that the mission team undertakes after getting Perseverance up and running.

While the newly released recording showcases the first true Martian audio, it's not the first sound of any type captured on the Red Planet.

NASA's InSight lander "heard" the Martian wind shortly after its November 2018 touchdown, after processing data gathered by an air pressure sensor and a seismometer. .
