“Be A Martian”


NASA just opened a website yesterday called Be A Martian. Here’s how the BBC describes it in an article titled How to explore Mars and have fun:

A Nasa website called “Be A Martian” allows users to play games while at the same time sorting through hundreds of thousands of images of the Red Planet.

The site includes some neat-sound games that look like they might be accessible to English Language Learners.  Unfortunately, though, it looks like the site is being overwhelmed with visitors and I couldn’t get past the home page before I got a page load error.

I assume they’ll get that issue cleared up later today, and I’ll be looking forward to exploring it further.
