First Words Sent To Mars

NASA's Curiosity Rover Images Of Mars

What do you think Marvin(The Martian) thinks about having the Mars rover Curiosity on his planet?  They’ve transmitted the first audio up to the rover and sent it back, marking the first time that’s ever happened. What an age we live in!

NASA’s chief, Charles Bolden, uttered the first words ever to be spoken on Mars – as far as we know! The words were radioed to the Curiosity Rover high up on the Mars surface. The successful transmission means the first ever recorded human voice has traveled from Earth to another planet and then back to Earth again!

The recording noted:

landing a rover on Mars is not easy. Others have tried, only America has succeeded.”
