You only have yourself to blame.

NASA, basking in the sort of attention it hasn't experienced since faking that moon landing, finally had a nervous breakdown and created this wondrous remake of All About that Bass.

Actually, I sort of love this. All About That Space is really the result of the Pathways Interns of NASA's Johnson Space Center being given unfettered access to places where they make massive engines of space exploration.

It was created, we're told, to raise interest and excitement for the first flight of Orion, the spacecraft built to take people further than humanity has ever ventured into space before.

Don't believe that it's really about Orion? Here are the lyrics, now go get some funding for these people, ASAP!

"All About That Space" lyrics

Chorus:

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.

Repeat Chorus
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.

Repeat chorus twice

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.
