The rover's landing platform will carry 11 sound recordings (selected in this project) in the memory of a Czech scientific instrument.

Basic description of sound
A lo largo de la historia de la humanidad, nuestra especie se ha esforzado por adquirir todo conocimiento posible sobre el cosmos. Ha habido tiempos difíciles en los que la verdad y la curiosidad fueron reprimidos duramente por la inconsciencia. Hoy tenemos artefactos contruidos por la humanidad en aquel lugar que un día fue venerado como un dios. Hoy podemos establecer comunicación directa, mañana podremos establecernos en él.

Transcription of sound
Aquí Marte llamando a la tierra. Llamando a Galileo, a Copérnico, a Hipatia. Llamando a los seres humanos que en alguna ocasión miraron al cielo y contemplaron mi rostro. Llamando a todos aquellos que se esforzaron por hallar las respuestas a sus propias preguntas. Mi llamada está siendo escuchada por los hombres y mujeres que conducirán a la especie a mundos aún hoy inimaginables. Marte os habla como punto de partida hacia el conocimiento del resto del cosmos. Un saludo.

Calling all those who struggled to find the answers to their own questions. My call is being heard by the men and women who will lead the species to worlds that are still unimaginable today. Mars speaks to you as a starting point towards the knowledge of the rest of the cosmos. A greeting.
