Has NASA's stunning Curiosity rover landing made science cool? With the release of the "We're NASA and We Know It" video, you might think so.

YouTube user Satire parodied LMFAO's "Sexy And I Know It" to depict Curiosity's seven minutes of terror, descent to Mars, panoramic photos and more -- complete with breakdancing.

"This is how I rove, baking red rocks in my nuclear stove," a "scientist" rhymes.

Even the rover is decked out in LMFAO-style shades (because Mars is so close to the sun?).

The best part?

"I got stars on my hawk and I'm not afraid to show it."

While the tribute isn't as sexy as the original mohawk man, Bobak Ferdowsi, it's still pretty impressive. Not as impressive as landing a one-ton rover on Mars, but still pretty cool.
