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.

Sound recording detail

Exit Empire - First (Call from Mars)

Author: Exit Empire
Country: Czechia
Number of votes: 365
Exit Empire created this song to celebrate science and space exploration. It was fascinating to play with the audio and include real sounds of Martian wind or first gravitational wave ever observed. There are also pictures of the landing location on Mars and the recently captured black hole converted to audio. Lyrics 'Light will come' refer to the Czech analyser with this song on board coming to Mars to study lightning. We also used typical Czech instruments cimbalom and organ. Keep looking up!
Words of the recording
You woke me up. When sol rose above I pave a path Back to the stars. When the skies get dark, keep looking up, light will come
