Music on Mars

The first music broadcast on Mars was Will.i.am's song "Reach for the Stars" at about 4 pm EDT today. The Martians got to hear the song first as this was the debut of the single. NASA is trying to inspire and encourage kids to become more interested in science. This isn't the first time that music has been piped from earth into the heavens, however - other instances occurred earlier, notably in 2008 when NASA sent George Harrison's "Across the Universe" out into the universe!
