“Reach for the Stars,” is about will.i.am’s passion for science, technology and space exploration. This video is a behind the scenes look at the creation of the song.

For the first time in history, a recorded song has been beamed back to Earth from another planet. Students, special guests and news media gathered at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, Calif., on Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2012, to hear will.i.am’s “Reach for the Stars” after it was transmitted from the surface of Mars by the Curiosity rover.
