CNN – NASA is relying on a little star power to train young people in space and promote their upcoming mission to the moon.
Trainees for the US Space Agency remixed Ariana Grande's "NASA" and rewritten the text to promote NASA's work.
"While we look forward to sending the first woman and the next man to the moon by 2024 with our Artemis missions, trainees working at NASA's Johnson Space Center have remixed Ariana Grande's NASA song to share the excitement
Grande's song is about a woman who needs a little space from her boyfriend and uses celestial imagery to make sense. She sings, "You don't want to leave me, but I'm trying to find myself
The interns switched text to text: "ISS in orbit, oh, the views will make you think. Back to the moon orbit there is still much to discover."  According to NASA, "educational parody" is part of a volunteer advocacy project.
"The lyrics and scenes in the video were designed to inform the public about the incredible work that is happening at NASA and the Johnson Space Center," NASA tells YouTube.
"Through the Agency's Artemis Lunar Exploration Program, we will use new innovative technologies and systems to explore more of the moon than ever before," the agency added.
Artemis, named after Apollo's twin sister in Greek mythology, will include the Orion spacecraft, the Gateway rocket and the Space Launch rocket known as SLS. One of the key features of the program is sustainable space exploration with a reusable spacecraft and architecture that can later take the people of Mars.
