Well, it's funny you should say that, actually.

In 203 ASC (three years after Project Phoenix Flight), Korra and her team introduced the Public at Large in Dìqiú to the Veil, the parallel world of Zipang on the other side, and the fascinating alien universe that lay on the far side of Zipang. Concurrent with this came a campaign encouraging people to learn the Galactic Standard language, the better to study and understand the "big universe", and interact with the carefully vetted visitors who were, at the time, starting to trickle in. By decade's end, quite a lot of learned people had done so, and Standard-language periodicals (usually Standard editions of existing newspapers and magazines) had started circulating in the major cities.

Early in 210 ASC, items began appearing in those periodicals promoting the upcoming release of a landmark new Standard-language publication, one which promised to make one of the most popular books of the previous decade available for students of the language - and bring the story of one of Dìqiú's proudest accomplishments to the foreign visitors who were then beginning to discover the world.

Items like this one...
