Opportunity is a robotic rover that has been providing photographic data on Mars for NASA since 2004. And now, British scientists have used the 5,000 solar image on the red planet to create a piece of two minute music use the image specification technique.
It sounds like a picture: how they make music out of the picture
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.
"Image sonication" is a truly flexible technique to explore science and can be used in many areas, from studying the specific features of surface surfaces and the atmosphere to analyze changes in the weather or to detect volcanic cuts, "added Vicinanza.
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.

A musical piece of the red planet sun
"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.
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 public will experience the experience of the first sunrise person on Mars
Vicinanza along with Genevieve Williams from the University of Exeter will present the piece of the Mars Soundscapes piece 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.
About Mars Opportunity rover
Opportunity, also known as MER-B or MER-1, is a robotic activist operating on Mars since 2004.
He was launched on July 7, 2003, as part of the NASA Mars Exploration Rover program, which cleared at Meridiani Planum on January 25, 2004, three weeks after the two Gospel touched her on the other side of the blaned.
Earlier in 2018, he stopped communication following a dust storm. Scientists hope he will resume his role later this year.
