NASA Lucy asteroid mission-inspired craft ideas to try at home

NASA’s Lucy mission to the Trojan asteroids is scheduled to launch soon, with the agency targeting a window that opens on Saturday (Oct.16). Here at, we took a quick look at some Lucy-inspired craft activities that could help keep you occupied while you eagerly await the liftoff. 

There are a number of fun and educational crafting activities available on the Lucy page maintained by the Southwest Research Institute in Colorado, home of the mission’s principal investigator. For example, you can find instructions and printable templates to make your own Lucy spacecraft paper model, details on how to make a Lucy mission snowflake and even printable Lucy asteroid trading cards. There are also various Lucy flyby posters you can download for yourself as mementos of the mission.
