will.i.am's New Single "Reach For The Stars" To Debut On Mars

will.i.am will debut his latest single through the Curiosity rover.

Black Eyed Peas front man will.i.am is going to outer space to debut his new single "Reach For The Stars."

According to MSN, the rapper will take over the speakers on the Curiosity rover, which landed on Mars earlier this month on a fact-finding mission. NASA officials will host a special listening session for students at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California tomorrow (August 28th) and blast it through the Curiosity speakers.

The event will also host the announcement of an educational initiative between NASA and will.i.am's charity i.am.angel Foundation.

    The only reason that he is able to have this type of publicity is because of his relationship with the President and his deal with Coca-Cola to sell $350 headphones across the world made from recyclable products (the 'green' industry). There's no reason anyone has to have their music played in space. There are more important things that NASA has to do instead of this. Tax dollars at waste, yet again....

      It is what it is. Why, out of all the other artists out there, doesn't someone else do this exact same thing? I doubt they have the opportunity. This is clearly linked to will.i.am's promotion of 'green' jobs and products. You do know that NASA is payed for with taxpayer money, so you are paying for this, right? When those controllers take an hour out of their day to set all of this crap up for a 3 minute song, everybody's paying for that. And don't think a NASA tech is cheap

      "open your mind. in order for the human SPECIES to survive, space exploration is crucial. who gives a shit about the couple of unfit people who don't contribute and leech of society in the first place. that's the reason why our planet (environmentally and politically) are so fucked up to begin with." You're trippin. Go to a new planet and do what? Destroy it too and then you have to find another planet and another and another etc. the human species need to die. All we do is consume, fucking leeches. The people who are dying of hunger should be the ones to live as they consume hardly anything and would lead to an Earth capable of lasting millions more years with plenty of resource. Europe has lead to the complete depletion of Earths resources. Why don't they go to another planet to destroy and die in luxurious bliss

      the next step in human evolution is space. in case you haven't noticed we've already fucked up our planet big time and our future generations will inherit a synthetic earth with no resources left. open your mind. in order for the human SPECIES to survive, space exploration is crucial. who gives a shit about the couple of unfit people who don't contribute and leech of society in the first place. that's the reason why our planet (environmentally and politically) are so fucked up to begin with. i'm sorry if this went over your head. ILLUMINATI AMIRIGHT?
