NASA’s record-breaking Lucy asteroid mission gearing up for October launch

NASA’s Lucy asteroid probe is set to begin its 12-year space odyssey next month.

Lucy is scheduled to launch atop a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket from Florida’s Cape Canaveral Space Force Station on Oct. 16. The liftoff will kick off a landmark mission that will see Lucy get up close and personal with eight different space rocks over the next dozen years.
