Kudos to NASA's Johnson Space Center interns for their remix of Ariana Grande's track, "NASA," because the batch of spring 2019 students garnered the attention of the pop star with their reimagined version of the cut and accompanying music video.
As per the video description, the assignment was a volunteer outreach video project with the intent of being educational and a parody. "The lyrics and scenes in the video have been re-imagined in order to inform the public about the amazing work going on at NASA and the Johnson Space Center," a description for the clip read. After NASA shared the clip on Twitter, Grande, 26, took to the social media platform to show some love for the project, writing, "Oh my. this is so pure and special and insane," she wrote. "Hi everyone over there that is doing such incredible work ! thank u for taking the time to make this ! my heart is ….. bursting."
Beyond promoting education, NASA's intent for the parody is in line with their second exploration to the lunar surface. For this mission, NASA wants to send the first woman to the moon. " The Artemis mission will be sending the first woman to the moon by 2024. And as the agency looks forward to the success of this mission, the Interns from the Johnson Space Center made a remix of the famous Ariana Grande song 'NASA' to share how excited they are for this new adventure to the moon," NASA wrote in a Facebook post on Sunday (September 8).
