Listen to the sounds from the surface of Mars for the first time with this Nasa recording

NASA have captured sounds from Mars for the very first time.

An audio clip of the martian wind from the red planet was released after it was detected by hi-tech space equipment.

The sounds were recorded by an ultra-sensitive seismometer developed in the UK and an air pressure sensor.

A NASA InSight lander craft made it to Mars last month with the support of the UK Space Agency.

It is armed with an array of sensors to study how planets, moons and meteorites with rocky surfaces were formed.

Science Minister Chris Skidmore said: “Less than two weeks into the InSight Mission UK science is already uncovering incredible things about Mars.”

InSight's specialised robotic arm will be used to move scientific instruments from the craft to the surface

NASA scientists said they will soon start snapping the surface to locate the best place to start drilling
