If you were the first person on mars, what would you say?

"Well, now we're here, we sh... what's that noise? Do Mars rovers carry loudspeakers? I swear I can hear some kind of SSTV signal."

Five minutes laaaaaater.

"Huh. Looks like four Kerbals and a pyramid."

"So... Do you think there's a place in history for the first man to die on another planet? Meh, maybe not, I'll go home now. Hmm... Where'd I put the keys?"

"I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite planet in the Solar system."

I think this is the best one on this thread!

Warshawski: You're right. I'm thinking "That's another small step for [a] man, another giant leap for mankind."

As far as I know, that was supposed to be the original term. Neil got nervous so he fumbled it up a bit.

I am in agreement. I think it should be the original moon quote as well.

I, for one would not like it if that phrase was re-used. We're breaking new ground, and stretching our horizons, why not try to out-do the old?

Considering this would be after being locked away for a prolonged period of time in a higtech tuna can:

Touching down my feet on the martian soil, casually ready myself looking down. Then slowly raising my gaze straight into the camera which conveys this pinacle of human achievement to some billion earthlings and finally saying:

Oppa Martian Style

I'd say something really dramatic like

"Today mankind has made a giant leap into the future"

Actualy, My last post was stupid. I think I would go with either:

"Guys... How do we get back?"

Or

"I forgot my mittens- We have to go back!"

"Some people say humanity is a virus... Congrats Mars- You just got humanz!"

I would probably say something along the lines of, "I welcome humanity to a new era of exploration"

I would quote a whole bunch of tourettes guy. I'm not kidding... I will do that if I ever walk on Mars. Just litter the television sets of millions of viewers with "AHHHH Sh*T!!!!"

"On this sol begins the era of life on Mars. Simpler life forms may have tried before us, with less determination and adaptability, but this time, let us hope that we sow the seeds of a flourishing world of wonders such as our first home, Earth. This moment marks a pivotal event in Life's colonization of the Solar System, by way of Humanity, it's sapient guardian. We wish only to grow"
