NASA interns launch spoof video 'All About That Space'

After the successful launch of the Orion spacecraft, a group of NASA interns cut loose with their very own pop cover tune.

Now here's a line from a pop song you don't hear too often: "If you got boosters boosters, just raise 'em up/'Cause every spacecraft needs propulsion/From the bottom to the top."

While they might not be as catchy as the original lyrics from Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass" -- the song that's parodied -- it's easy to look past that because the starring NASA interns are just so goofily endearing in their spoof video titled "All About That Space."

In the video, the interns dance -- as only young engineers can -- around a bunch of NASA tech while replacing Trainor's lyrics with ones that talk all about the Orion mission, which had its first successful test flight last week.

"All about that Space" was created by interns at the Johnson Space Center to bring attention to the Orion spacecraft, which may one day take humans to Mars.

This, of course, isn't the first cover version of Trainor's runaway hit song. There's the classic, "All About That Bass," the Thanksgiving favorite, "All About That Baste," and the inimitable (and kind of creepy), "All About The Chase." Our favorite here at CNET though, is most definitely this called "All About That Base."

But this NASA one is running a close second. Party on, interns!
