Mars rumbles as monster quake hits, biggest ever to be detected

Mars, the home of nearly five human-made technological marvels, is shaking.

The InSight lander on the Red Planet has recorded the strongest quake measured at a magnitude 5.

The quake was detected on May 4, as the spacecraft kept its ears stuck to the ground listening for the rumbles.

The spacecraft, which was on the 1,222nd Martian day, or sol, of the mission, recorded the strongest quake since landing on the Red Planet in November 2018.

The largest previously recorded quake was an estimated magnitude 4.2 detected on August 25, 2021.

While a magnitude 5 quake is medium-sized for Earth and is felt across the world at regular intervals, it's different when it comes to Mars.
