Personally I like the one's chosen by an Navajo elder to be sent to the Moon during the Apollo missions:

"Watch out for these guys, they've come to steal your land"

A very old joke, but funnier then heck.

Well, I think that the very first words on Mars soil will be something technical, like "Houston, Eagle has landed".

But I think a grandiose address should be prepared for the occasion, in fact.

Argos
2002-Oct-10, 07:18 PM
The question of the time delay just occurred to me. There will be no real time conversation as in the Apollo days. The two ends of the line will be limited to exchange information in batches.

So, the info confirming the landing could be followed by the speech. The address should be short (there's no time to waste) and meaningful.

Actually, I delight in pointing out that the first words after landing on the Moon were some serious technobabble:

102:45:40 Aldrin: Contact Light.
102:45:43 Armstrong (on-board): Shutdown
102:45:44 Aldrin: Okay. Engine Stop.
102:45:45 Aldrin: ACA out of Detent.
102:45:46 Armstrong: Out of Detent. Auto.
102:45:47 Aldrin: Mode Control, both Auto. Descent Engine Command Override, Off. Engine Arm, Off. 413 is in.

From the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal (http://www.hq.nasa.gov/office/pao/History/alsj/a11/a11.landing.html), of course.

It's very funny that a literal underliner translation of that exchange into Russian makes a literary text. Well, almost - the word "is" somewhat ruins the impression (auxiliaries are uniformly omitted in Russian, used only for emphasis).

And all the documentaries cut out that part, which I consider one notch short of the old Soviet practice of "erasing" disgraced figures from official photographs.

Marvin the Martian, to be exact.

To put my two cents in, the first words may possibly be, "We know what it feels like in microgravity......perhaps we should now see how it feels in Martian gravity. *snigger*" And if the last words were, "Screw you guys, I'm going home," it would be rather funny.

Not first words... and I wish I could remember the author... but I read a short story some years back about the first permanent settlement on Mars. The crew numbered 50 of the best and brightest from several disciplines. They were chosen at random to avoid any claims of favoritism.

As luck would have it, the crew was composed of 49 women and one man... call him Phil. To sooth damaged male egos everywhere, Phil was made mission commander.

The expedition set off for Mars, landed safely, and began establishing a permanent colony.

Nine months and two days later, the follow-up expedition arrived, to find that the Martian population had exactly doubled to 100, each woman having given birth, one to twins.

From that day forward, the leader of the first permanent Martian settlement was referred to in awe as Phil the Great.

That phrase would redirect all of my interest in nearby planets to Venus.

Oh, but worse -

Viagra Presents Venus

With several references to the ancient goddess, of course.

Mercury will be turned into an auto-plant.
Jupiter will be sponsored by Beano.
Saturn will be sponsored by Jarrad's.
Uranus and Neptune will be bought out by Microsoft when they realize they don't have any planets yet.

And of course - McPluto

3."I knew i made a wrong turn at Albuquerque" (If anyone can get where that is from i will be impressed.)

Bugs Bunny in about half a billion of his cartoon segments. The one where he annoys Yosimite Sam in Saudi Arabia particularly comes to mind.

[Edit: What, that wasn't the last page? *snaps fingers*]

Ok then, what's the closest exoplanet?

By the time we have interstellar spacecraft capable of reaching the nearest exoplanet, the communists will have taken over, and there will be no corporate sponsorship.

Obviously...

Btw, great idea for a thread!

:)

I'm afraid we won't see any humans landing on Mars during my lifetime though....

:(

30 years ago I thought our manned space program was going to actually do something significant. We even had at least one astronaut who was supposed to go on the Mars mission. Unfortunately since then we have been going backwards. Sheesh! We can't even go to the moon right now.

Sorry.

This reminds me of a cartoon in the local paper when Apollo 11 was on its way to the moon.

It pictured an astronaut standing on the leg of the LEM looking at a parking meter and saying: " It says ' one rubel per half hour'".

Cheers,

Shoot!

I heard him talk on C2C and now I've forgotten his name....

:(

I'll see if I can dig it up somewhere. I'm having zero luck with google right now.

Even more quotes...

Translation: The astronauts were struck dumb by the beauty of the planet.

"Houston, I think we've found one of your rovers...do you want us to take it back to Earth?"

"Houston, we've found one of the '04 rovers. Actually, it found us. It seems to be drilling a hole in the habitat module."

"Uh, Jim...something new, please."
"Oh, right...well...*sniff*...if Mars were a woman...this would truly be...an excellent first date."
"That was beautiful, Jim, just ****ing beautiful."
"Shut it, Rob. Let's hear you say something historic."
