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.

It contains an extract from the movie Interstellar, the actual best movie about space of all times. It's that magic moment when the poem "do not go gentle into that good night" is recited by the voiceover. This audio match exactly 30 seconds and I think it would be the perfect message in the perfect context from Mars. The meaning is basically to never back down and that even when the odds are not in our favour we will always fight, TO THE LAST BREATH!
Words of the recording
Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Though wise men at their end know dark is right, Because their words had forked no lightning they Do not go gentle into that good night. Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
