NASA To Launch 'Lucy' To Jupiter's Trojan Asteroids

NASA has filled "Lucy" with fuel and is being packed into a capsule for launch on October 16. Lucy will be the first spacecraft of the agency to explore Jupiter's Trojan asteroids.

Engineers have run tests on Lucy's mechanical, electrical, and thermal-systems, and practiced launching the spacecraft from mission-operations.
