Nicki Minaj's "Beam Me Up Scotty": Official Mars Landing Theme?

Beam Me Up Scotty

Over the weekend, the attention was slightly taken away from the 2012 Summer Olympics for Curiosity, the robotic explorer launched by NASA to land on our neighbour planet Mars. The apparatus successfully landed and took pictures that left the world in shock and awe. And speaking of shock and awe, we were surprised to see that Nicki Minaj's song "Beam Me Up Scotty" at no.10 in our Top 100 lyrics chart. Even though the tune isn't a new release (it's from her 2009 mixtape of the same name), we instantly thought: is this the official theme for the 2012 Mars landing? Listen to the song here:
