Juno Spacecraft - Mission to Jupiter



I'm a space science dork.  I have NASA t-shirts, a large print of the moon in my office, read sci-fi and I make space/science themed music mixes.  Here are links to a few that I've done in the past:

Yikes, that was more than I thought and I may have missed a few.

This new mix fits right in with my love of all things NASA and my love of electronic music.  What sets this one apart is the sequencing of the tracks.  The titles of the tracks take you on the Juno mission from start to finish.  Going from "We Launch Tonight" to "Arrival" to "Ganymede" to "Cloud Shaping" to "The Last Message."

The Juno Spacecraft was launched in 2011 and arrived at Jupiter in 2016.  It's been taking amazing pics and gathering data while in orbit.



After completing over a years worth of orbits and close fly bys, Juno will plunge into Jupiter's atmosphere and burn up, sending data back for as long as possible.

This mix attempts to tell the story of Juno on it's mission to Jupiter and it's moons.

Cheers!

I'm always glad to see one of my tracks end up in one of your awesome mixes. Can you contact me on FB or Bandcamp or something, I'd like to continue this w/you. Thanks! E - Lunar Testing Lab.
