Making Mars Speak Human
The BeautifulMars Project is looking for people to help us promote the idea that knowledge about Mars belongs to everyone. If you are fluent or even semi-fluent
in any of the languages listed below, or want to volunteer to add a new one, contact us
to help make outreach history.
How It Works
We send you a link to a Google document with a list of titles. On your time and schedule, you translate the titles and then a coordinator reviews the work. Most of our titles are short,
but some can be a challenge because of specific terms we use. Once the review is done, we post these to our Tumblrs and send another “assignment.”
Most importantly, there is no deadline.
We know people are busy, so you do the assignments when you can. Our volunteers
love the idea of helping out an active NASA mission so much
, that we’ve never needed to remind anyone!

Note for Educators
The BeautifulMars Project is an excellent way to promote learning a new language, or adding a new dimension to your lessons. We also have versions of the HiRISE site with captioned images,
including slides, audio and video clips available for use.
