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