Curiosity sends Will.I.Am song from Mars
For the first time, aired a song from one planet to another, through NASA’s Curiosity rover. The song, as we advance, was “Reach for the Stars”, released by will.i.am of this particular way. The MP3 was played to an audience of engineers and students at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory of NASA.
The song was sent from Earth to mars and back using Curiosity. The rover does not have speakers, so the Martians could not hear the singer’s new work. Furthermore, because the Martian atmosphere is different from the Earth, the sound would have heard something distorted.
Will.I.Am is just one of the celebrities who have participated in NASA education projects: above Morgan Freeman, director Barry Sonnenfeld, comedian Seth Green and actress Nichelle Nichols (Lt. Uhura in Star Trek) participated in other projects.
