We have previously reported that the Mars rover Curiosity has a wake-up playlist that includes songs from the Beatles, the Doors, Sinatra and, of course, Anthrax. While that news–not to mention the rover’s “conversation” with Britney Spears–was pretty out there, we’ve got word that is truly out there.
NASA announced recently that the Curiosity will be premiering “Reach for the Stars,” a new track from the Black Eyed Peas’ Will.I.Am, tomorrow afternoon on the Red Planet. The event will take place at 1PM PDT, or 4PM EDT. How do you feel about Will.I.Am being the first artist to have a song premiere in outer space? [Vulture]
