The short film roughly about nine minute-long begins with stunning visuals and Juno s principal investigator Scott Bolton talking about how he was fascinated with Jupiter being the first planet formed after the Sun and curiosity to know more about its formation and existence. He then goes on to say that great innovation comes from combining analytical and creativity. This is where the music bit comes in the short film. We have artists like Corinne Bailey Rae and Quin. They share their thoughts about the galaxy and space.
The soundtrack of the film is produced by Trent Reznor from the popular rock group Nine Inch Nails with his fellow composer Atticus Ross. The music is a serene and ambient tune combined with sounds emitted by Jupiter which was recorded by NASA instruments. The collaboration further went on to create a featured section on Apple Music called Destination Jupiter which features the soundtrack and other tracks from artists like Weezer, Brad Paisley and more. The film and the music are available for free on iTunes and Apple Music respectively.
