Curiosity Transmits First Song from Mars
#1
[تصویر:  13462575751.jpg]


NASA's Mars rover Curiosity has just become the Red Planet's first
public radio service, transmitting singer will.i.am's new track "Reach
for the Stars" to Earth.


Discovery Education, a provider of digital resources to kindergarten through grade 12 classrooms, is a partner with will.i.am's i.am.angel Foundation.
Together, they have announced a new science, technology, engineering,
arts and mathematics (STEAM) initiative featuring NASA missions such as
Curiosity
The song, that was received by NASA's Deep Space Network, was inspired by will.i.am's passion for science, technology and space exploration.


In the audience at the special NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL)
event were 53 high school students from the i.am College Track Center in
Boyle Heights, East Los Angeles -- the neighborhood where will.i.am
grew up.


"Today is about inspiring young people to lead a life without limits
placed on their potential and to pursue collaboration between humanity
and technology through STEAM education. I know my purpose is to inspire
young people, because they will keep inspiring me back," will.i.am said
in a press statement.


The artist and members of the Mars Science Laboratory team spoke
about the message behind the song and some of the cool science Curiosity
will be carrying out on Mars.

After his song had debuted, will.i.am discussed why he chose a more
orchestral piece. "I didn't want to do a song that was done on a
computer, I wanted to show human collaboration and have an orchestra
there and something that would be timeless and translated into different
cultures -- not have a hip-hop beat or a dance beat."


He also pointed out that to compose something orchestral isn't what
is expected of an artist in his genre and that he felt that he broke
some boundaries by doing so.


will.i.am also had some words of wisdom for the students in the JPL
audience: "You have to think beyond. Anything is possible if you're
disciplined." He did point out that it won't happen overnight, but if
you stay focused, education can help you achieve anything you set your
mind to -- this was the ultimate message behind "Reach for the Stars."

"Discovery has a 25-year commitment to education and igniting
peoples' curiosity, rooted in our very DNA. The foundation's goals
around STEAM education are in perfect synch with Discovery Education's
experience, solutions, tools and resources to drive interest and
excellence in STEAM subjects and eventually, careers," said Bill
Goodwyn, CEO, Discovery Education. "We are thrilled to partner with the
i.am.angel foundation and will.i.am on this groundbreaking initiative
and together, prepare the next generation of STEAM leaders."




Today's historic event comes only a day after the first human voice
was transmitted from Mars to Earth. Curiosity carried a prerecorded
message from NASA Administrator Charles Bolden. Here's the message he
sent in full:


نقل قول: Hello. This is Charlie Bolden, NASA Administrator, speaking to
you via the broadcast capabilities of the Curiosity Rover, which is now
on the surface of Mars.



Since the beginning of time, humankind’s curiosity has led us to
constantly seek new life ... new possibilities just beyond the horizon.
I want to congratulate the men and women of our NASA family as well as
our commercial and government partners around the world, for taking us a
step beyond, to Mars.



This is an extraordinary achievement. Landing a rover on Mars is
not easy – others have tried – only America has fully succeeded. The
investment we are making ... the knowledge we hope to gain from our
observation and analysis of Gale Crater, will tell us much about the
possibility of life on Mars as well as the past and future possibilities
for our own planet. Curiosity will bring benefits to Earth and inspire a
new generation of scientists and explorers, as it prepares the way for a
human mission in the not-too-distant future.



Thank you.
