I recently received an email from Candy Hansen-K of NASA about the contributions to the JunoCam mission. Good news!
I’d like to take a moment to thank you for all of your hard work and participation with Mission Juno. We have enjoyed your processed JunoCam image contributions! Radical media is creating a few short films for Juno Project and the missionjuno site, and we might be using some of your images to showcase the incredible work people from around the world are doing. I wanted to reach out and let you know, and ask if you could please sign the attached release and send it back. Of course if for some reason you don’t want us to use your products let me know.
Thank you again for your generosity with your time!

Background (taken from JunoCam team page)
Candice Hansen-Koharcheck earned a Bachelor of Science in Physics from California State University, Fullerton, in 1976. The next year, she began work at JPL, joining the Voyager Imaging Team as assistant experiment representative. Her task was to design the camera image acquisition sequences for every satellite flyby that occurred during Voyagers’ encounters with Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
Suffice to say, I signed the paperwork and returned it immediately. I am very much looking forward to the new Juno Mission documentaries, and excited to be part of something like this.
It is astounding how this came about, so here are some earlier blog posts which showcase some of the artwork and music directly inspired by the Juno Mission.
