NASA InSight Lander 'Hears' Martian Winds

Described As A 'Haunting Low Rumble' Produced By The 8-13 Knot 'Breeze'

NASA's Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport (InSight) lander, which touched down on Mars just 10 days ago, has provided the first ever "sounds" of Martian winds on the Red Planet.  InSight sensors captured a haunting low rumble caused by vibrations from the wind, estimated to be blowing between 10 to 15 mph (8-13 knots) on Dec. 1, from northwest to southeast. The winds were consistent with the direction of dust devil streaks in the landing area, which were observed from orbit.

AMA Drone Report 12.06.18: No Drone Zone Nonsense, FAA's 'Buzzy', Airport Probs

Also: FAA Exec Appointment, Drone Use Standards, Censys BVLOS, Woolsey Fire Recovery Drones

OK... it’s getting a little out of control... Signs have been popping up saying drone flights are prohibited on trails and in parks in and around Sedona, AZ, but there is apparently no way for anyone to enforce the "No Drone Zones". The signs say drone flights are prohibited within five miles of an airport, and refers potential drone users either to the airport authority or the US Forest Service. The airport website has a link to "Report" drone flights, which are referred on to Deborah Abingdon, Sedona’s airport manager. But the FAA says that airport operators cannot ban drones, according to FAA regional spokesman Ian Gregor. Getting a drone for the holidays? The FAA's “Buzzy the Drone” will help you learn the do’s and don'ts of being a responsible drone operator and flying you
