Launched on October 16th 2021, Lucy is the first mission to the Trojan Asteroids.
Mid-October, the probe started a long twelve-year journey to eight of Jupiter asteroids to understand solar system formation and evolution since the Big-Bang.
The probe will make multiple flybys of the Sun and the Earth to correct its trajectory to finally reach firstly the Trojan asteroids of Lagrange point L4.
After the exploration of the first asteroids, Lucy will perform a gravitational flyby around the Earth in order to get to the asteroids at Lagrange point L5.
3D PLUS contributes to the mission with multiple high performance and long life time products to ensure the capture and the return to earth of key scientific data after a 12-year journey in space:
