The speed of sound on Mars is different from that of Earth, the Perseverance rover observes

NASA’s Mars rover Perseverance has detected that sound moves more slowly on the Red Earth than on Earth and created some unexpected ways to have other effects for communication on Earth.

The sound waves move slowly Marsthe sky before they do Earth. This is good, because the speed of sound depends on the thickness of the object to which the sound waves travel (and, in some cases, the temperature). In Earth’s atmosphereat 68 degrees Fahrenheit (20 degrees Celsius), the sound travels at 1,125 feet (343 meters) per second, but in the extreme form of water, it moves at 4,856 feet per second (1,480 m/s), according to the word. Scientific alert.
