Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass” has resulted in hundreds if not thousands of parodies. We’d like to present you with the best one yet, courtesy of none other than the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA):

“All About That Space” is corny, funny, and downright brilliant.

The video was created as part of a volunteer outreach project by the Pathways Interns of NASA’s Johnson Space Center. The goal was to raise interest and excitement for Orion’s first flight, but we suspect it will help NASA more broadly.

If you’re not in a public setting and want to sing along, here are the lyrics:

Because you know
I’m all about that space
‘Bout that space, space travel.
I’m all about that space
‘Bout that space, space travel.
I’m all about that space
‘Bout that space, space travel.
I’m all about that space
‘Bout that space

Yeah, it’s pretty clear, I ain’t commercial crew
But I can launch it, launch it
Like I’m supposed to do
‘Cause I got that boom boom that all the Astros chase
And all the space flight to all the right places

I see Orion crew workin’ that ship nonstop
We know we goin’ far
Now put that LAS on top
If you got boosters boosters, just raise ‘em up
‘Cause every spacecraft needs propulsion
From the bottom to the top

Hey, they’re working so hard, don’t you love these NASA guys?
They will take us so far the first time that Orion flies.
You know we travellin’ to deep destinations ‘fore to long,
So if that’s what you’re into then join in and ride along.

Because you know I’m
All about that space
‘Bout that space, space travel
I’m all about that space
‘Bout that space, space travel
I’m all about that space
‘Bout that space, space travel
I’m all about that space
‘Bout that space
Hey!

I’m bringing rockets back
Go ahead and tell the whole world that
We’re doing exploration. Come on, board it stat
We’re ready for liftoff
Every spacecraft needs propulsion from the bottom to the top.

Hey they’re working so hard, don’t you love these NASA guys?
They will take us so far the first time that Orion flies.
You know we’re travellin’ to deep destinations ‘fore to long,
So if that’s what you’re into then join in and ride along.
Because you know I’m
All about that space
‘Bout that space, space travel
I’m all about that space
‘Bout that space, space travel
I’m all about that space
‘Bout that space, space travel
I’m all about that space
‘Bout that space

Because you know I’m
All about that space
‘Bout that space, space travel
I’m all about that space
‘Bout that space, space travel
I’m all about that space
‘Bout that space, space travel
I’m all about that space
‘Bout that space

Because you know I’m
All about that space
‘Bout that space, space travel
I’m all about that space
‘Bout that space, space travel
I’m all about that space
‘Bout that space, space travel
I’m all about that space
‘Bout that space
‘Bout that space, ‘bout that space
Hey, hey, ooh
You know you love that space.

Some interns fetch you coffee, do work they weren’t hired to do, and become lords of the photocopying machine. NASA interns write physics puns, choreograph line-dancing, and sing pop songs. Space!
