From the mailbag:
[M]y name is Ari and I work for a NASA mission called HiRISE, a camera on board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter that takes high resolution images of Mars. (uahirise.org).
We have an outreach effort called “The HiTranslate Project,” where we seek out volunteers to translate titles into various foreign languages; we have several Twitter feeds devoted to each specific language that we have volunteers for. But we are looking to create a Latin language feed that would be the most unique NASA resource. It would put Latin in a modern context to show the continued usefulness of the language especially as an educational resource.
If you know of people who might be interested in translating titles into Latin, we would appreciate any help. We do think this is a unique opportunity and we hope to get it moving.

If you’re interested, drop me a line and I’ll forward your message to Mr Espinosa. This could be an interesting ongoing thing for one or more senior Latin classes …
