Musician Will.i.am has produced a public service announcement discussing some of NASA’s “spinoff” technology. The PSA above has been developed in an effort to promote them as well as the agency that made them. 

The PSA was released on the space agency’s website and on NASA Television on Wednesday, March 28. Will.i.am focuses on the NASA spinoffs that provide electricity, medical care and fresh food and drinking water.

The Black Eyed Peas front man joins a growing list of celebrities that have added their voices to the support of NASA. Mary J. Blige, Clint Black and Norah Jones have all produced similar PSAs for the space agency.

“NASA’s technologies don’t just go into space,” said Daniel Lockney, program executive for technology transfer at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “They work for us here on Earth, solving everyday problems — saving lives, creating jobs and making our lives better.
