Audiable sound on other planets

    HI friends,
    Has there been any sound recorded on any other planets when spaceships visited there?

    Yes actually.

    The NASA Mars rover had a microphone attached to it. This was the first and (as of now) only microphone in space. (Excluding the mics that astronauts use, which weren't exposed to the environment outside of the ships/spacesuits)

    Sadly i'm not aware of any recordings that you can download.
