Ari Espinoza, outreach coordinator for HiRISE (High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment) at the University of Arizona, wants to help Hebrew speakers learn about Mars.
The HiRISE camera on board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has been taking photos of the planet since 2006. In 2010, HiRISE started working with volunteers to bring knowledge of Mars to people with limited English skills. Hebrew is one of 15 languages included in the Beautiful Mars project. HiRISE’s Tumblr (http://beauti fulmars-hebrew.tumblr.com) and Twitter feed are the only NASA resources in Hebrew. To volunteer to translate titlesfor HiRISE’s Hebrew Tumblr, visit www.uahirise.org/epo/.
