To raise excitement about the Orion launch, the Pathways Interns of NASA's Johnson Space Center put together this music video set to Meghan Trainor's "All About That Base."

Because that's what you do when you have time to kill while waiting for a spacecraft to travel to deep space and back.

Last week, NASA successfully sent the unmanned Orion 15 times as far as the International Space Station. The historic moment is being dubbed "Day One of the Mars era," with hopes to eventually land humans on Mars by 2030.

Short Film of the Day: 'Wanderers' Imagines Future in Space

A new short film by Swedish artist Erik Wernquist uses audio from Carl Sagan's 1994 book "Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space" and original animations to visualize what life might be like after Earth.

Wernquist based all of his images on real scientific ideas and concepts from NASA, which you can read more about on his site.

According to the description:

The title WANDERERS refer partly to the original meaning of the word "planet". In ancient greek, the planets visible in the sky were collectively called "aster planetes" which means "wandering star". It also refers to ourselves; for hundreds of thousands of years - the wanderers of the Earth. In time I hope we take that leap off the ground and permanently become wanderers of the sky. Wanderers among the wanderers.
