NASA parodies 'All about that Bass' to promote space exploration

As has become a recent tradition, the students at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas parodied a hit song to highlight NASA's work in space exploration.

This year they turned Megan Trainor's song "All About that Bass" into "All About that Space" to spur excitement for Orion's first flight.

Orion had a two-hour test flight and successfully recovered from the Pacific Ocean on Dec. 5. The spacecraft is expected to eventuallycarry a human crew further than ever. It will launch on NASA's Space Launch System (SLS) for missions to asteroids, and, one day, Mars.

While the focus has been on the development from commercial crew vehicles from SpaceX and Boeing, NASA has continued its development of rockets since it decommissioned the shuttle in 2011. NASA is currently transporting crews to the International Space Station on Russian Soyuz rockets as Russia is the largest partner on the ISS in addition to Europe, Canada and Japan.

This is not the first time NASA has spread its love for space through music video parodies. In 2012, students at NASA's JSC went viral with a parody of "Gangnam Style," celebrating the work on the International Space Station and other space exploration projects.
