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
Au gré Des vents Et des mers N’écoutant Personne, Me laissant aller. Destination Inconnue, Sans repère : Pas de retour Possible Sans aller. Mille lieux Plus loin, Toujours perdu : Loin des miens Et proche Du vide. Ma chère Maman, Où es-tu ? La Vie M’a dit De t’attendre Ici. J’aime la nuit Comme décor, Le jour : La vérité Nous ment. Immobile Dans mon propre Corps, Sur Mars Toujours En Mouvement.
Transcription of sound (English)
Based on the Winds and seas Listening to nobody, Letting me go. Unknown Destination Without landmarks : No return possible Without going. A billion miles further, Still lost. Far from mine And closer To the empty. My dear mother, Where are you ? Life told me To wait for you Right here. I love the night Better, During the day : The truth is lying. Motionless In my own Body, On Mars Always Moving.
