Today is a special day of celebration as NASA’s Mars Curiosity was launched into orbit and performed a flawless separation on its way to Mars for an August 2012 landing in or near Gale crater. Watch separation video.
In advance of the August landing, the weak area-specific molecular field of Mars can be replicated (what it feels like) by matching a Mars meteorite directly or extracting the field from an audio recording similar to the one made by the descending Huygens space probe on Saturn’s moon Titan. I know this because of a particular pattern recognition ability I have with weak electromagnetic fields. It is a similar process to that of developing the skill of human echolocation but in this case it is the skill of interpreting weak electromagnetic fields and their physiological effect on the body and most likely other biological life.
Unfortunately, the scientific community has not recognized the value of audio recordings for extracting these underlying weak fields. None of the Mars rovers were designed with microphones. This leaves us with matching the field of Mars meteorites for a close approximation of what Mars feels like. I extracted the weak field from a video of Mars meteorite ALH84001. This was a little tricky as only a short segment of the video had live audio near the specimen. Even so, I was able to make a good approximate field match.
If you were at Gale crater with the Mars rover Curiosity, this is what the area-specific field (composite molecular structure) would be similar to. This is a replication of Mars as a designer compound electromagnetic field emanating from an audio coil. You can recreate this field either by playing the mp3 audio file or by tuning material such as a glass, silicone wristband or inexpensive magnetic tape. Learn more on tuning material here.
