Sounds from Mars

Which apparently doesn't carry far, (for obvious reasons).

Re: Sounds from Mars

There is actually 2 different speeds for sound on mars. … helicopter

Its speed depends on whether the sound is high-pitched or low-pitched

The speed of this sound is about 250 meters per second, the team reports. That’s slower than on Earth, where sound travels through the air at about 340 m/s.

Martian surface at frequencies below 240 hertz, or slightly deeper than middle C on a piano: 240 m/s.
