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.

A kind, lighthearted greeting.
Words of the recording
Welcome to the people of Earth. This is a test transmission from the surface of your red neighbour, Mars. May science lead us to the great unknown, and help us remind the universe that we were here. We mattered, and we pushed ourselves to be better. Through peace and cooperation, I believe that it is possible to overcome any obstacle and create a true, unified utopia. This is Pieter Johannes Lombard Signing off.
