One fine week in May, well, I needed some peace
I packed up my bags and I headed to Nice
I went to see Morby, up there on that hill
And we started talking, as scientists will.
Now, Morby and I have been working for ages
We’ve had this sweet project that’s chopped into stages
We wanted the thing to go out with a bang
To make a big splash (or, well, maybe a clang)!
Our project’s called MOJO. It’s been lots of fun
It’s all about planets and how they begun
The agency funding it’s called ANR
We’re awfully grateful, we honestly are.
So now let me quickly, well, get to the point
See, Morby and I, well, we don’t disappoint
We hired a video team to record us
They picked up their camera and pointed toward us.
Each of us talked about what we’ve discovered
About the ideas that our team has uncovered
All that is new in ol’ planet formation
Like pebble accretion and planet migration.
We studied hot super-Earths: what makes ’em hotter?
And our planet Earth, just how’d it get its water?
And why is it Jupiter’s bigger than Earth?
And why is Mars so much much smaller in girth?
And one final bonus is something quite new-ah
The origins of that thing, Oh-MOO-AH-MOO-AH! [aka ‘Oumuamua]
The object that came from afar just to visit
That’s not unusual. Really, now, is it?
And now, without any more fuss, let’s deploy ’em
Here are the videos. Hope you enjoy ’em.
