NASA turns “All About That Bass” into “All About That Space”


There’s been much to be excited about in the world of aerospace engineering and space travel. With this month’s NASA Orion social detailing the agency’s plans to send astronauts to Mars, the European Space Agency’s successful landing of Philae on the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko, and next month’s reawakening of the New Horizons spacecraft that will take never-before-seen, high-resolution images of Pluto, it’s safe to say we’ve truly entered a new era of space exploration not seen since the Apollo program.

Unfortunately, most news media outlets in the United States have been slow to cover and herald all of the scientific marvels taking place in today’s space industry. But not to be outdone, and in response to NASA’s need for social media visibility, the Pathways Interns of NASA’s Johnson Space Center have created a volunteer outreach video project that playfully recreates Meghan Trainor‘s widely popular song “All about that bass” with “All about that space.” This new rendition of Trainor’s song gives scientists and engineers the opportunity to strut their stuff with new lyrics and accompanying choreography that highlights many of NASA’s recent achievements and plans.
