Time Capsule left on Mars

Tuesday, May 27, 2008

The Phoenix lander did not just take images of Mars and beam them back to Earth, but it also left something behind. A time capsule.

A special DVD of messages - that is, an interplanetary time capsule - has been left on Mars for future settlers (or even Martians) to discover.

The digital time capsule, compiled by the Planetary Society, stores personal greetings from science fiction visionaries including 2001 author Arthur C Clarke, who died this year, and Ray Bradbury, author of the Martian Chronicles.

The disc, intended as a digital time capsule, holds personal greetings recorded by space visionaries, such as the late science-fiction author Arthur C Clarke, who wrote 2001: A Space Odyssey, Ray Bradbury, the author of The Martian Chronicles, and Isaac Asimov, the author of the Foundation series.

It also holds a collection of Mars-themed literature and artwork, including a poster from the 1936 film Mars Attacks the World, depicting the intergalactic hero Flash Gordon preparing to battle a tyrannical Martian ruler called Ming the Merciless.

Audio recordings also stored on the disc include Orson Welles's chilling 1938 radio broadcast of War of the Worlds – the tale of an invasion by Martians that was so realistic it caused public panic in the US – and narrations by the British actor Patrick Stewart, who played Captain Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation.

"It could be centuries from now, on the planet Mars, when a man, or a woman, or perhaps a child, will come across this small disc," said Carl Sagan, the head of The Planetary Society.

"When this future Martian picks up this tame-looking disc, he or she will hold in their hands a message from our world, addressed to theirs.

"The disc will be part of a relic of an ancient unmanned spacecraft named Phoenix, which landed on the planet.

"Possibly preserved as a historic memento, perhaps long abandoned and forgotten, Phoenix will have kept its secret through the long Martian years."

Louis D Friedman, executive director of The Planetary Society, came up with the idea when his friend, Isaac Asimov, died. "I began thinking – how do we honour him?" Mr Friedman recalled. "And it's not just him. It's what he represented. So then I thought: why not honour three giants, Asimov, Bradbury and Clarke – A,B,C – and do it by sending their stories to Mars. Then I began discussing it with Carl and other people and it grew into this bigger idea, this notion of a science-fiction anthology."
