Last year, it was all about the New Horizons probe blowing past Pluto after a nine-year trip. This year, we’re watching Juno, a new probe that will spend the rest of its lifetime orbiting Jupiter. Its mission really gets going Monday when it finally reaches its destination after a five-year trip.
Trent Reznor and songwriting partner Atticus Ross are watching Juno, too. In fact, they just released a song about the probe. Meanwhile, Weezer has done something similar in a NASA-commissioned song called “I Love the USA,” which is also part of an Apple Music/NASA project called Destination: Jupiter.
