The 16-minute raw audio feed was of the first test drive conducted by the rover on March 7and was released on March 18 by Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

“That’s the sound of me driving over Martian rocks. This is the first time we’ve captured sounds while driving on Mars,” the official Twitter account of the rover wrote while sharing the audio recording.

The audio was recorded by the entry, descent, and landing (EDL) microphone, one of the two microphones, attached to the rover.

Perseverance, said to be the most advanced rover ever sent to Mars, landed on the red planet near an ancient river delta on February 18 to search for signs of past life.
