WILL.I.AM NARRATES NEW NASA SPINOFF TECHNOLOGY PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

WASHINGTON -- Much of the technology we rely on daily was developed by 
NASA for space exploration and adapted or enhanced for use here on 
Earth. This includes many technologies used in schools, homes, cars, 
computers and industry.

Musician Will.i.am talks about how some of the agency's outstanding 
accomplishments in space are used to improve our life on Earth in a 
new public service announcement made available Wednesday on NASA 
Television and the agency's website.

The artist concentrates on NASA technologies that help increase 
production of clean water, provide remote medical care and solar 
electricity for refrigeration, and space technology that keeps food 
fresh during its trip from field to market.

In addition to Will.i.am, singer Norah Jones and Astronaut Piers 
Sellers, along with characters from the holiday movie "Arthur 
Christmas," have appeared in recent videos telling audiences how NASA 
Spinoffs benefit life here on Earth today.

"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.
