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.

Baby Tom is laughing

I recorded my son, Tom, while he was laughing. I found it very funny, positive and inspiring :-))) It was in December 2018. Tom was 6 months old. My wife and I adopted Tom when he was 3 months old. He is a very joyful baby, often smiling and laughing :-) Why sending this sound to Mars: => It's positive, fun, quick and easy to understand. => Everyone made such a sound, so we can say it's universal. => In a way, I find that it's a good symbol for mankind.
