Rapper will.i.am can boast of an accomplishment that is out of this world: His latest single premiered from Mars, making it the first song to debut on another planet. … The tune — which aims to encourage youth to study science — completed a trip of more than 300 million miles from Earth to Mars and back, according to NASA.
If NASA truly wanted kids to study science, it wouldn’t give them pop musicians. It would give them a GOAL. Kids didn’t swarm to the sciences in the fifties and sixties because Elvis or the Beatles told them to; they did because NASA was fricken’ going to the Moon, and they wanted to be a part of it.
