The atmospheric medium that the sound waves travel through determine how far those sounds will carry....... the temperature will have more effect on the speed of the sound........ that is my armchair Theory and I'm sticking with it

Without some sort of atmosphere, the parachute would have been worthless.

Less atmosphere for resistance less gravity to pull it down to the surface so it would go faster and farther. You would also be able to jump farther as in the documentary John Carter of Mars
So, why doesn't sound travel faster on Mars?
My understanding is that temperature has a lot to do with the speed of sound waves...... so it's pretty cold on Mars... hence the speed of sound would be a little slower. I'm sure woohoo guy will come in and set it straight
Colder equals denser equals faster sound all other being equal

Sound is a mechanical wave, which means that it needs substance to travel through, such as air or water.
is radio a mechanical wave?
No

sound may travel farther in colder/denser air but the speed slows down. Sound travels faster in warm air

i am a little mind blown trying to make my brain understand that sound travels MUCH faster through a solid than air. Sound waves can go 6,000 fps in a solid. 1100 fps in air.

for the record, running and sound are different.

Atoms are closer together in a solid, farther apart in air.

I find this so incredible. I've listened over and over. *possible stupid question* coming I mean, space is a vacuum, so how is there sound? I'm amazed that we can even record sound on Mars. Is this the first time ever hearing space?
Mars has a very thin atmosphere, mostly carbon dioxide. After the core of Mars cooled, it lost its magnetic field and lighter gasses were either stripped or floated away. Being mostly CO2, sounds will not sound the same as on earth. The atmosphere being less dense means sound travels slower, around 500 mph, and it does not carry higher pitched noises very well, so all sounds would "sound" lower.
Thanks :) it's really fascinating.
When I read this stuff, I think about technical divers who use helium with their oxygen when deep diving (actually called Trimix-though the stuff that has no nitrogen is apparently called Heliox). They sound like Alvin and the Chipmunks when talking to topside. :lol:

I didn't know that about diving either. I need to brush up on some science. :geek:

Don't encourage the lapdog. His idea of a scientific experiment is banging 2 rocks together and see what happens. The math involved just getting the 2 rocks was almost enough to kill the whole thing.

so Mt Everest is measured in feet above sea level. if there are no oceans on Mars, then what reference point do they use for 0 elevation?
