The Latest NASA’s ‘Eyes on Asteroids’ Reveals Our Near-Earth Object Neighborhood. Come hear Michael Sekerak, NASA engineer, talk about the Lucy mission and future missions.
Lucy is the first space mission launched to study the Trojan asteroids. Trojans are small bodies that are remnants of our early solar system. They orbit the Sun in two loose groups: one group leading ahead of Jupiter in its orbit, the other trailing behind.
During its 12-year primary mission, Lucy will explore a record-breaking number of asteroids, flying by one main belt asteroid, and seven Trojans.
No other space mission in history has been launched to as many different destinations in independent orbits around our Sun.
