Not going there as they don't do the battered, deep fried Mars bar like chippies in UK.
Good one snowy.

I've just heard a short sound recording made by a microphone on Perseverance.

It was mostly an even electric hum from the lander but there was also the gentle sound of a Martian wind gust. Cool

They did a nice job filtering out the machine sounds so we could hear clearly the Martian wind on its own.

This was from an ongoing live NASA programme.

About time someone in London or NY starts issuing Mars new issues I guess.

re: First Picture from Mars

Dear Guys,
There is an urban legend relating to Neil Armstrong that is too good not to share. I can't speak to the accuracy/truth of it, but I thought you'd like to see it none-the-less.

When Apollo Mission Astronaut Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon, he not only gave his famous “One small step for man; one giant leap for mankind” statement, but followed it by several remarks, including the usual COM traffic between him, the other astronauts, and Mission Control. But before he re-entered the lander, he made an enigmatic remark “Good luck, Mr. Gorsky.” Many people at NASA thought it was a casual remark concerning some rival Soviet Cosmonaut. However, upon checking, they found there was no Gorsky in either the Russian or American space programs. A mystery that required an answer.

Over the years, many people (reporters/officials) had questioned him as to what the “Good luck, Mr. Gorsky” statement meant. Armstrong never addressed their questions on that point. On July 5, in Tampa Bay, FL, while answering questions following a speech, a reporter brought up again, the 26- year-old question to Armstrong. He finally responded. And now we have the rest of the story:

It seems that Mr.Gorsky had recently died, so Armstrong felt he could now answer the question.

When he was a kid, Neil was playing baseball with his brother in the backyard. His brother hit a fly ball which landed in front of his neighbors’ bedroom window. The neighbors were Mr. and Mrs. Gorsky.

As he leaned down to pick up the ball, he heard Mrs. Gorsky shouting at Mr. Gorsky, “Sex? Sex you want? You’ll get sex when the kid next door walks on the moon!”

Unfortunately it is an urban legend.

No truth in the matter whatsoever!

Good story though!!
