    When Neil Armstrong set foot on the Moon in 1969 he said: "That's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind."
    Let’s think what words the first astronaut should utter when he will land on Mars? Perhaps it is prematurely to speak about it since the Martian spaceflight will occur within 20-30 years and not earlier but still we can invent some suitable phase for this purpose

    what would you suggest?
    “The next giant leap after the Moon is Mars, so here we are!”
    “This is even greater leap than the lunar (spaceflight) and we did it!”
    What else can we invent?

    I can't find my copy of Red Mars, and I failed in googling. Was there ever a mention of John Boone's first words on Mars? I'm guessing maybe not, it's one of those things that all the characters would know from their history, so only alluded to without saying them.

    "i hope we have enough gas to get home".

    "3 billion dollars for a handful of rocks and dirt?"

    "was this trip really necessary?"

    "we are here, now what?"

    "i hope we didn't forget anything."

    "we came, we saw, it's exactly as you expected."
