NASA experts have just approved the project to build Lucy interplanetary spacecraft. The space equipment will be launched in the next few days, the Southwest Institute of the United States (SwRI) said.

According to the original plan, in 2021, Lucy will be put into operation, starting the process of studying the asteroids of Jupiter.

Trojan asteroids are the last trace of the formation of the Solar System. These are considered special "living fossils" of the time the Solar System appeared.

Lead project researcher Hal Levinson said: Lucy will perform the mission to study the origin of human and the history of life on Earth.

According to the approved plan, Levinson's team will work on the Lucy probe, equipped with many scientific equipment, cameras and spectroscopy. The Lucy spacecraft will collaborate with two other NASA projects, New Horizons and OSIRIS-Rex, to conduct ongoing research in space.

The Lucy spacecraft is a project to win the Discovery contest, which was initiated by NASA in the early 1990s. The project has a special design program to complete missions and provide maximum scientific benefits, with minimum cost.

Within the Lucy project, experts develop and send into space 12 orbit probes, modular wings and space telescopes. In January 2017, NASA announced that the Psyche and Lucy projects would continue to carry out asteroid research missions on Jupiter.

The Psyche space station project will study the birth and structure of the asteroid of the same name Psyche, which is thought to be an "embryonic" fragment of the Solar System, and the Lucy space station will study the asteroid. Trojan.

Two centuries ago, astronomers discovered that some asteroids could travel in orbit with the Solar System. Large amounts of objects such as the Trojan asteroid were discovered by astronomers in the orbit of Jupiter, Mars and Neptune.

As expected, NASA's Lucy spacecraft will begin researching Jupiter's meteorites in 2027, after spending about 6 years to reach giant planet like Trojan.

Lucy interplanetary spacecraft is named after an Afar Australopithecus. It was discovered by paleontologist Donald Johanson in 1974. Lucy belongs to the Afar Australopithecus, which is said to be related to the Homo and the ancients.
