will.i.am is taking his music out of this world
NASA has approached will.i.am about producing an exclusive track to be played during a future Mars mission.
The first listen of the song by the Black Eyed Peas frontman would be broadcast back to mission control according to reports.
A source told The Sun: 'Will has a natural affiliation with NASA and even namechecked them on his single 'T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)'. He's always keen to get involved in their projects and this was an opportunity he couldn't turn down.
'NASA feel Will is the ideal figure to appeal to a mainstream audience and promote their technologies.'
The tune is likely to be a bonus track on his upcoming album '#willpower' and the deal would make history as it is believed to be the first of its kind.
He has previously worked with the US space agency to promote science to young people on micro-blogging website twitter.
'The Voice' mentor has also done a public service announcement on NASA's TV channel.
The producer will apparently begin work on the musical number once his television commitments on the BBC1 talent show have ended.
