Call from Mars

decide which sound we will broadcast from Mars to Earth

In March 2021 the first European planetary rover will land on Mars as part of the ExoMars mission. The rover's landing platform will carry 11 sound recordings (selected in this project) in the memory of a Czech scientific instrument. The sound recording that receives the most votes before the ExoMars probe lands on Mars will be transmitted back to Earth.

Liebe Pioniere, Verwandte und Freunde! Es gab eine Zeit, bevor wir hier waren, und es kann eine Zeit danach geben. Wir können nicht sicher sein, was hinter dem Horizont liegt, aber lassen Sie uns weiter den edlen Handwerk nachgehen, die uns hierher führen. Es muss kein Bedauern geben, keine Tränen, keine Ängste. Nur Wissen, Erkundung und die Schwere unserer neuen Mission Lassen Sie diese neue Erkundung unsere Rotverschiebung sein, und können wir in den Sternen Frieden finden. Ich lasse dich in guten Händen, Erdling Wickus Bester

Dear pioneers, kinsmen and friends, There was a time before we were here, and there may be a time after. We cannot be certain what lies behind the horizon, but let us keep pursuing the noble crafts that lead us here. There must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Only knowledge, exploration and the gravity of our new mission Let this new exploration be our Red Shift, and may we find peace in the stars. I leave you in capable hands, Earthling Wickus Bester
