Rapper will.I.am will be the first Hip-Hop artist in history to have his song premiere from the surface of Mars.
Nasa’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory landed the Curiosity rover on Mars on August 6th. Tomorrow (August 28), Nasa will host an educational event about Mars, where members of the JPL Lab will talk with students about the rover’s findings, thus far.
After the discussion, Curiosity will broadcast will.I.am’s song “Reach for the Stars” directly from the Red Planet
