A new music video released by NASA shows just how “all about that space, ‘bout that space, space travel” the agency is.
The video features Pathways interns from NASA’s Johnson Space Center dancing and lip-synching to a parody of Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass.” The purpose of the parody is to generate interest in Orion's first flight, according to the video description, as well as inform the public about ongoing work at the Johnson Space Center.
The Orion spacecraft was launched into space on December 5th for its first deep-space test flight. It returned to Earth the same day, just 4.5 hours after its maiden flight. For a video of the splashdown taken by recovery crews aboard the USS Anchorage, check out a video here.
This is not the first time NASA has launched a parody of a pop song on Youtube. For past efforts, check out "We're NASA and We Know It," "NASA Johnson Style," and "NASA Wallops Harlem Shake."
