Space Fact of the Week
Lucy Mission Approved
Set to launch in 2021, NASA's Lucy spacecraft will be the first to study Jupiter's orbiting asteroids, the Trojans. Lucy will visit seven asteroids, studying their composition, geology and physical properties closely for 12 years! This will help us gain more insight on Solar System formation and the role small celestial bodies play here on Earth.
The review panel has approved the budget, risk analysis factors, and detailed plans. It is now time to move on to the assembly of the spacecraft, which Red Canyon will proudly be working flight software and avionics development!
