Will.i.am song to be played on Mars

34 posts in this topic

A pop song by Black Eyed Peas singer Will.i.am will be the first song from earth ever to be broadcast from another planet.

The singer announced on his Twitter feed that his new song 'Reach for the Stars' will be played by NASA's Curiosity rover, which landed on Mars earlier this month.

The song will be played at 7pm BST this evening and will be streamed live from NASA's website and broadcast on NASA TV.

Not his biggest fan by any stretch of the imagination - but that is a pretty cool thing to have on your CV...

That'll stop any Martians getting too close to the Rover! That man sings like I play the Neolithic butt-flute!

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.

That pretty much sums up my opinion on this.

Why Will.i.am?

Why don't they choose a song with a well established track record of annoying people? Grease Megamix?

Oh, do we really need to antagonise any hypothetical aliens ever before we've started?

All that money spent and we're going to kill off any potential life on there with that planks voice before we have chance to find it....someone, somewhere, needs to lose their pension over this!

Why are they using a synthesized voice. I would think they would use a good real voice....... Celine Dion perhaps.

"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...

Anyone remember "Close encounters of the 4th kind"? (or was it 3d??) :

OK, if you do, then watch this (max volume):

This must sound insane and scary even for an alien, lol, even though they might like (and recognize) the light show.

Interesting............

Was curiosity programmed by a petrol head?

I mean, loud music & burnout's on Mars isn't really science is it..

:rolleyes:

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.

As if the man needed a bigger ego. Why not just go the whole way and play Rick Astley if they want to troll Mars?

Considering our fascination with the planet Mars, "Never Gonna Give You Up" by Rick Astley would be quite good. :)

A bit of classical music would have been much better. Beethoven, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, or any other classical composer would have made more sense.

I could see that. It's brought a lot of people on Earth together. I could just see the aliens flying over giving us the horns instead of the finger with this crap...

This is hilarious. We spend 2 billion to send Curiosity to Mars and they send music by this idiot. There are countless artists that I can think of that are more worthy. What a world this is.
