On August 28, 2012, for the first time in history a recorded song was beamed back to Earth from another planet. Students and special guests gathered at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory to hear will.i.am’s “Reach for the Stars” transmitted from the surface of Mars by the Curiosity rover.

We’ve partnered with NASA to inspire students with the limitless possibilities of space exploration. “If it wasn’t for the work of NASA would we have the computers we have today? For us to continue to advance, we need to give the youth of today the STEM skills they need to be the innovators of tomorrow.” — will.i.am
