You knew it had to happen! She mission controllers from JPL that landed the Curiosity rover so successfully on Mars on August 6, inspired a great rap video now gone viral. Based on the popular LMFAO song, “Sexy and I Know It,” in crosses factoids about the NASA Curiosity mission with images of mission control and video of engineers trying to dance and act cool. These folks are a far cry from the pocket protector, white shirt and narrow tie crowd of earlier spaceflight eras but they are still geeks and nerds and they celebrate it in this totally unique way. Embrace your nerdiness, is all I can say. Meantime, enjoy this truly fascinating and fun video, complete with shout-outs to Carl Sagan and Neil deGrasse Tyson.
