What Do We *Say* When We Get to Mars? Offer Your Ideas

Suggestions are part of a competition being staged by the Mars Society, an advocacy group, to suggest what ought to be spoken when the first people set foot on the Red Planet. No firm plans for sending humans to the Mars have been outlined by NASA, though the agency recently revealed early ideas that suggest some earnest planning may be in the wings. The contest, called First Words, is designed to raise awareness of a possible crewed mission.
