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.

Transcription of sound
Тёмный город вдали И остатки руин не видны, Их скрывает туман. Словно облако мглы, Словно был ураган. Принеся море тьмы векам, Что тот город стоит, И в раздумье застыв, Словно призрак весит. Там, где давно птичий свист Был стенами забыт, Где давно правит лишь тишина, Эти камни стоят в темноте, Будто ночь, позабыв о дне, Не ушла.
Transcription of sound (English)
A dark city far away And the remains of the ruins aren't visible, Fog hiding them. As if cloud of mystery, As if hurricane. Bringing a sea of darkness for centuries, When the city is stand, And in thoughtful frozen, It's like a ghost hanging. Where bird's whistle Was forgotten by the walls for a long time, Where only silence rules for a long time, These stones stand in the dark, As though a night that forgotten about the day, Is not gone.
