In comments below this excellent answer to Are there methods of lightning detection on Mars? I lament not being able to remember where I'd read about radio noise in the receiver of a real-world Martian lander or rover being interpreted as electrical discharges in dust storms on the planet.
Now I'm afraid that I might be remembering something from a work of fiction.
Question: Was radio interference caused by Martian dust storms ever addressed in the 2000 film Red Planet?
Science background: Dust particles can become charged in high velocity turbulence in a dry atmosphere due to collisions with each other or perhaps the surface.
