Will.i.am is set to produce an exclusive track which will be launched into outer space, it has been reported.
The Black Eyed Peas singer and The Voice judge is also a celebrated producer and his talents have been scouted by NASA according to the Sun.
The space agency apparently wants him to produce a song to be played during a future mission to Mars.
"NASA feel Will is the ideal figure to appeal to a mainstream audience and promote their technologies," a source said.
The track, which is likely to then appear as a bonus track on his next album, will not be the first instance of Will and NASA working together.
He has previously helped with their Twitter campaign to promote learning science in schools, and has recorded an announcement for NASA's television channel.
