Background information:
NASA's Juno spacecraft was launched aboard an Atlas V rocket from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida on August 5 in 2011.
The solar-powered spacecraft arrived at Jupiter in July 2016 and orbit its poles 33 times to find out more about the gas giant's interior, atmosphere and aurora.
Scientists believe Jupiter holds the key to better understanding the origins of our solar system.

**Angela Gheorghiu, soprano, as Juno

*** "Apo 22": Spoken word samples courtesy of NASA;
This track features the actual voices, commenting for the Juno Spacecraft while in Apo-22, of:
a: Randall Faelen( Lockheed Martin, Deep space exploration Real-Time operations Lead)
b: Chris Leeds (Lockheed Martin, Telecom Sr. engineer).
c: Jennifer Delavan (Lockheed Martin, Spacecraft systems)
d: Matt Johnson (Juno mission manager, JPL/Caltech).
This is the command audio from Juno's apoapsis maneuver to jump Jupiter's shadow.

Background information: The eclipse avoidance maneuver (APO-22) altered Juno's orbital plane so that Juno would not fly through Jupiters shadow on Nov. 3, 2019.
Because Juno is solar powered, a long eclipse would drain its batteries.
Without this maneuver, the spacecraft would have entered the shadow for approximate 12 hours likely causing the mission to end.
(Juno was designed to survive a much shorter eclipse at Earth flyby (October 2013)

Decca: The work, inspired by NASA’s ground-breaking mission by the Juno space probe and its ongoing exploration of Jupiter, is a multi-dimensional musical journey featuring the voice of opera superstar Angela Gheorghiu.
The album includes sounds from the Juno launch event on earth, from the probe and its surroundings and Juno’s subsequent journey that have been sent back to earth from the probe, which continues to study Jupiter and its moons: 365 million miles away.
July 2021 marks the five-year anniversary of the Juno spacecraft's orbit insertion at Jupiter. Launched in 2011 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Juno arrived at Jupiter on July 4, 2016. Due to its importance the mission that primarily was scheduled to be completed 31st of this July, has been extended by NASA and now Juno will continue exploring the full Jovian system - Jupiter and its moons - until September 2025.

 "I thought to put emphasis on the characteristics of Jupiter/Zeus and Hera/Juno that according to the Greek Theogony*, had a special relationship. I felt that I should present Zeus/Jupiter only with sound, as the musical laws transform chaos into harmony, which moves everything and life itself. Unlike, for Hera / Juno, I felt the need for a voice. Angela Gheorghiu, represents in this historical depiction of the mission to the planet Jupiter, Hera / Juno, in a breathtaking way."
*The Theogony i.e. "the genealogy or birth of the gods" is a poem by Hesiod (8th – 7th century BC) describing the origins and genealogies of the Greek gods.

Atlas Push lyrics

And the booster has begun its roll for spacecraft thermal constraints
Lights look good.
Plus battery voltages are stable.

And the vehicle has now gone into close of [obscuring] (?).
And booster {PU ? / view?] is also in close of control.
Engine response looks good for the set mixed ratio.

Current altitude is 45.8 miles and altitude downrange distance 69 miles.
Velocity... 5413 miles per hour.

Coming up on our.. our CS pyro valve activation.
It is now fired. Systems now pressurizing to flight levels.
We've begun our two and a half [cheat? / chi?] throttle segment.

Engine response looks good.

Current altitude is 16 miles in altitude, downrange distance 118 miles, velocity is 6983 miles per hour.

Coming up on our next mark event will be payload fairing jettison followed by the CFR jettison.

And we have payload fairing jettison, and CFR jettison.


Apo 22 lyrics

[Jennifer Delavan]: All stations on Juno 4. This is the start of our console time for Everest 22. And we're happy to see everyone's smiling faces on Juno 4.
This is the start of our console time for Everest 22. And we're happy to see everyone's smiling faces around the room.
And we're gonna do a quick voice check with everybody just making sure we're all online. And I will sit back to the huge excitement!

Man: Ok

[Jennifer Delavan]: Mission Manager, systems?

[Matt Johnson]: Good systems.

[Jennifer Delavan]: Happy fly-by,  just wanna make sure you're online and copying our excitement.

Man: I read you, bye bye as well and can feel the excitement

[Jennifer Delavan]: Excellent.

Man: Copy.
