This Ariana Grande song was remixed by NASA as a recruiting tool for women to go to the moon

NASA is employing Ariana Grande to attract women to the space program. I quote: “As we look forward to sending the first woman and the next man to the Moon by 2024 with our Artemis missions, interns working at NASA’s Johnson Space Center remixed Ariana Grande’s song ‘NASA’ to share their excitement for deep space exploration.”

Taking the song “NASA”–which is a song about a women needed space from her boyfriend–a couple of lyrics were switched out.

OLD: “You don’t wanna leave me, but I’m tryna self-discover. Keep me in your orbit and you know you’ll drag me under.”

NEW: “ISS in orbit, oh the views will make you wonder. Back to lunar orbit there is still more to uncover.”

Enjoy. Via CNN through Shane.
