Scientific history was made earlier this week when the Perseverance rover captured the first recordings on Mars. See the hilarious twitter reactions.

Mars rover Perserverance caught the first sounds of Mars: The best memes

David Bowie once asked, “Is there life on Mars?” Well, we can tell him there is sound. NASA’s Mars Perseverance Rover landed on the red planet on February 18th. Though two microphones on the rover were recording during its descent, the sounds weren’t viable. 

Until two days later that is. . .“A microphone attached to the rover did not collect usable data during the descent, but the commercial off-the-shelf device survived the highly dynamic descent to the surface and obtained sounds from Jezero Crater on Feb. 20,” according to NASA’s press release. 

Twitter of course erupted at the news of recordings from Mars. Some were very into it. Others did not. Here are the tweets that really nailed the landing. 

Teary eyes

Just the concept that we have heard what Mars sounds like, that we have heard what wind on Mars sounds like, is exhilarating. Everyone’s childhood dream of being an astronaut was realized today. 

The M in EDM stands for Mars

Plenty of people on Twitter noted the high likelihood of some DJ or “artist” sampling the Perseverance recordings in their next single. Just so you know, if Twitter makes fun of something before it’s even a real tangible thing, then maybe don’t do it. 

Target Lady

We would pay Kristen Wiig a crap-ton of money to get the Target Lady’s reaction to the sound on Mars. In fact, Saturday Night Live should do a Target Lady on Mars sketch with aliens as her customers. YAY TARGET!

Chime in on Mars

Can you imagine landing on Mars and finding wind chimes just hanging out in the breeze? Maybe each astronaut could add a new one with a different note.

Are we happy to hear what Mars sounds like? Absolutely. Do we feel like we kinda missed out on an amazing troll by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration? Affirmative. 


Yes, the sound isn’t loud but it can still rock. We shimmed when we heard it, don’t judge us. 

Lo-fi Mars beats

Speaking of music, there is something Lo-fi about the sound. We wouldn’t mind bobbing our heads to some chill grooves from Mars while studying or writing meme articles. 


Some people really didn’t get the hype. We appreciate this user’s unabashed bluntness to take out and diminish one of the greatest scientific events of the last five years.
