Fossils of Planet Formation: Lucy Mission Teaser


[Music] Beyond the asteroid belt
are fossils of planet formation, known as the Trojan asteroids. These primitive bodies share
Jupiter’s orbit in two vast swarms, leading and
trailing the planet. Now, NASA is preparing
to visit seven asteroids. Embarking on a twelve-year
odyssey that will span Jupiter’s orbit. One mission will explore these
objects for the first time. Lucy: the first mission
to the Trojan asteroids. [Music]
