Hi, great podcast! Just wanted to mention to your why dont they just use rocket engines which use the atmosphere of the earth. Currently there is a engine under development which does exactly this. It is called SABRE(synergetic air breathing rocket engine). Greetings

Wasn't the seismometor the instrument that picked up the "sound"? I wasn't aware that they brought a microphone.
