Mars sunrise recorded in the Opportunity rover turned into a musician of the scientist

Scientists have created a piece of music with 5,000. Mars's sunrise captured at NASA's Opportunity rover.

The technique known as "data bias" was used to reinterpret the image in a two-way sound file that is played while viewing the image.

The photo is scanned from left to right, and each brightness and color information element is turned into a certain pitch and melody.

Their resulting piece, named Mars Soundscapes was set up at the Supercomputing SC18 conference in Dallas the next week.

Besides the sounds, the audience will be exposed to vibrating transmitters that will allow them to feel vibrations in their hands while listening.

"Image painting is a very flexible technique for science research and can be used in several domains, from studying certain aspects of planetary surfaces and atmospheres, analyzing weather patterns, or discovering volcanic eruptions," said Dr. Domenico Vicinanza of Anglia Ruskin University.

"In health science, scientists can provide new methods for analyzing the appearance of certain shapes and colors, which is particularly useful in image diagnosis."

The opportunity has captured images on the surface of the red planet since 2004. Rover just thought of 90 days at Mars, but he's been 14 years old.

Earlier this year, NASA lost communication with it when there was a huge storm of dust, but the team hoped to re-establish contact when the conditions were more stable and had the opportunity to recharge the batteries.
