~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(1) How soon should we send translators and interpreters into space?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A recent quick poll posed the question "When we colonize the moon or Mars, how soon will we need to send translators and interpreters?" It may be a bit of a silly question. Or maybe not.

Will we still need translators and interpreters in space? You can vote on the poll and add your thoughts in the discussion topic:

(3) There is an ant on your southwest leg: how language influences the way we think
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Did you know there is an Aboriginal community in Australia, the Kuuk Thaayorre, that, instead of using "left" or "right" when talking about direction, use cardinal directions? For them, a phrase like "There is an ant on your southwest leg" would be perfectly normal and immediately understood. How does this difference in language reflect or influence the way Kuuk Thaayorre think? In a recently posted TED talk, Lera Boroditsky discusses this and other examples of how language shapes the way we think. Be sure to check it out:
