NASA探索特洛伊小行星的项目将于2021年10月发射

Nasa Trojan asteroids mission on course for October 2021 launch

Nasa’s Lucy mission has passed a critical milestone in its development: all components of the spacecraft passed a system integration review (SIR) on 27 July, and it can now be assembled and tested in preparation for its October 2021 launch.

NASA的露西号最近实现了关键性的一步:飞船的所有部件在7月27日通过了系统集成审查(SIR),可以组装和测试,为2021年10月的发射做准备。

If it succeeds in its mission, Lucy will be the first spacecraft to explore the Trojan asteroids. These ancient space rocks share the same orbit as Jupiter, and are thought to be composed of the same material that made the gas giants of the outer solar system. During its 12-year mission, Lucy will fly by seven Trojan asteroids, collecting data to help reveal the formation history of the entire solar system.

如果任务成功,露西号将成为第一艘探索特洛伊小行星的航天器。这些古老的太空岩石和木星处于同一轨道,通常被认为是由与构成外太阳系气态巨星的相同物质组成的。在为期12年的任务中,露西将飞越7颗特洛伊小行星并收集数据,帮助揭示整个太阳系的形成历史。
