Will.i.am is a self-professed science, tech and space travel geek and has taken numerous opportunities to hang out at NASA facilities, including the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge , where students will gather for a news conference to hear the song when it comes booming out of the speakers of NASA's Mars Curiosity robot.
