Full title: Mars probe InSight detects possible 'marsquake', NASA says, in interplanetary first

It could have been a faint Marsquake or I wonder if it was a possible impact of a meteor at some planet wide location ?


The faint rumble characterised by Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) scientists as a likely "marsquake" was recorded on April 6, the lander's 128th Martian day, or sol.

Scientists are still examining the data to determine the precise cause of the signal, but the trembling appeared to have originated from inside the planet, as opposed to being caused by forces above the surface, such as wind, JPL reported.


The insight probe is extremely sensitive and detect just about any seismic activity.. A Difference in temperatures can cause land movements which might give off a reading of a Marsquake..


The size and duration of the quake also fit the profile of some of the thousands of moonquakes detected on the lunar surface between 1969 and 1977 by seismometers installed there by NASA's Apollo missions, said Lori Glaze, planetary science division director at NASA headquarters in Washington.

Could easily be the title of a low-budget, sci-fi movie:

MARSQUAKE!


Interesting news though, intermittent methane bursts, quakes, it would seem the dead planet isn't so

thanks for introducing a bit of thought

Mars is, like the rest of the Solar System, swimming in energetic stuff from both the Sun and from the molecular cloud leading edge that our System is plowing through for the next 'long period of time'.

Solar System wide Climatic changes are happening everywhere...

the Quake could be an interior cavern system collapsing as a by product of the rising heat or particle bombardments of a sealed chamber of natural Methane being agitated and resulting in a deep strata explosion/implosion

~or else~ the Atmosphere Machinery is kicking-in (i.e.: the TOTAL RECALL subterranean machinery left by the previous Martian Ancestors)

interesting area of imagination opening up
