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.
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 "Burn Like a Meteor and Leave No Dust" and finally "The Last Message."
Any Arthur C. Clarke fans will recognize the three tracks starting at 23:45. The tracks spell out the message from the end of his book, 2010 - "All these worlds are yours, except Europa, attempt no landings there."
The tracklist is in the comments and here... lowlightmixes.blogspot.com
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.
