The NIN frontman boldly goes.

Trent Reznor and his regular collaborator Atticus Ross have written a piece of music to celebrate NASA’s Juno Mission, which is projected to arrive in Jupiter’s orbit on July 4.

The Oscar-winning duo’s piece is inspired by recordings of the giant planet “singing”, as captured in recordings of its electromagnetic fields.

The cinematic soundscape is available to stream and purchase on iTunes, as CoS reports. Keep an eye on NASA’s Juno Mission via Twitter for the latest developments from the five-year mission.

Reznor’s band Nine Inch Nails are set to return in 2016 following 2013’s Hesitation Marks. Meanwhile he’s been working on a Fight Club rock opera and a video game score.

Watch Reznor talk about the importance of Moog synthesizers to his work, from his very first (Moog Prodigy) to the one that has featured on most of his music (Minimoog Voyager).
