We talk a lot about the importance of America maintaining its edge as a leader in science, technology and business innovation. Which is why Will.i.am, a walking version of a bad ’80s movie depiction of a “futuristic person,” was named the “creative director” of Intel and is now partnering with NASA to premiere a song on Mars, where no one will have to hear it because there is no sound in space.
The song is titled “Reach for the Stars.” Of course it is. NASA’s page calls it “a new composition about the singer’s passion for science, technology and space exploration.”
If the singer’s ubiquitous tracks like “I Gota Feeling” and “Boom Boom Pow” or his sunglasses or haircut aren’t enough to get under your skin, we invite you to check out his car. And his new space song “Reach For The Stars,” which you can stream in simulcast with the Mars premiere tomorrow by visiting this NASA page.
Or if you’d prefer, you can check out our pick for America’s space theme song, Melodysheep’s “Symphony of Science – Onward to the Edge!” with Neil Tyson DeGrasse, below.
