From the comments section provided in the link:
I am in awe of the Curiosity mission, the people and technology behind
it. I am therefore saddened to hear that this aspect of it is being dumbed down
for the masses; still, I suppose it could be worse (although not much) and
feature songs by One Direction or pictures of prince Harry naked....
Truth is, in 20 years time kids are going to learn about this
historic event, but are not going to have a clue who Will.i.am is, or know
anything about the crap song in question.

"Life on Mars?" by David Bowie might've been more appropriate.
"The Eve of War" from Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds probably less so...

"I can anticipate no greater calamity for the country than the dissolution of the Union. It would be an accumulation of all the evils we complain of, and I am willing to sacrifice everything but honor for it's preservation." - General Robert E. Lee
"I think I understand what military fame is; to be killed on the field of battle and have your name misspelled in the newspapers." - Major General William Tecumseh Sherman
Agree, agree and agreed with most comments here. Why him? Why not a song which is already famous and instantly recognizable. Is it to try and 'excite' youngsters about space? I don't know, anyways, bad choice in my opinion.
