This video showcases the suite of instruments aboard the Lucy spacecraft that will be used to collect data on the Trojan asteroids. Since Lucy will be the first space mission to explore the Trojans, the information gathered will provide extraordinary insight into the history of our solar system. The three main science instruments are L’LORRI, L’TES, and L’Ralph, and the mission will also utilize a High Gain Antenna and a terminal tracking camera (T2CAM) to carry out its investigations.
