Scientists translate Martian's solar image to music


Using the image of the 5,000th break on Mars collected by NASA rover Opportunity, British scientists have created a piece of music two minutes.

The soundtrack was created by scanning a picture of the left to the right, a pixel by pixel, and looking at the brightness and color information and combining it with a land elevation.

The technique used a technique of the "sonification data" that used computer algorithms to assign each element a specific circle and melody to translate a photo to music.

"We are delighted to introduce this work for such an interesting planet," said Domenico Vicinanza, the Sound Director and Game Engineering Game (SAGE) research group at Anglia Ruskin.

"Image specification is a truly flexible technique for exploring science and can be used in many areas, from studying the specific features of surface surfaces and planet, to analyze changes in the weather or to detect volcanic cuts," added Vicinanza.

The quiet, slow harmonies are the result of the dark background and create brighter, quick sounds towards the middle of the piece by distributing the bright sunscreen.

The data specification technique in health science can be applied to provide new methods for analyst scientists to take specific shapes and colors, which are particularly useful in image diagnostics, the team said.

Vicinanza along with Genevieve Williams from the University of Exeter,

introduces the piece of the Mars Soundscapes in the NASA booth at the SC18 Supercomputing SC18 coming to Dallas.

It is presented using conventional speakers and vibrant conveyancers so that the audience could feel the vibrations with their hands, enjoying the first person experience of sun on Mars.

Opportunity is a robotic rover that has been providing photographic data on Mars for NASA since 2004.

Earlier in 2018, he stopped communication following a dust storm. Scientists hope he will resume his role later this year.
