NASA’s Lucy mission in search of mysterious solar system planets
Colorado: NASA has sent a new spacecraft named after the famous fossil, Fossil, found in Africa, which will identify the asteroids near the planet Jupiter, one of the oldest remnants of the solar system. Are and experts have called them fossils of the solar system.
Launched from Cape Canaveral by the Alliance Atlas rocket, the spacecraft is tasked with locating two clusters of planets orbiting the gas giant Jupiter. It is believed that even after all the planets in the solar system were formed, their fate did not change and they are rotating like wandering objects. Thus the remnants of the solar system are included.
Arriving at Jupiter 12 years later, the planet is named after an important discovery of human evolution. Lucy was found in Africa, the oldest human fossil. That is why the spacecraft Lucy will also add to our knowledge of the ancient remains of the solar system.
Hall Levison, a professor at the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado, says that all the planets revolve around Jupiter’s orbit at 60 degrees.
The spacecraft will note the area, shape, volume, temperature, surface and other details of these 12 planets. Dr. Carly Howet, another scientist involved in the project, says that these solar system planets and other similar objects come from the Kuiper Belt and form there. But more research is needed on these 12 planets.
In 2027 and 202, the space machine will pass by a few asteroids and in 2033 it will come close to the sum of all the planets. It will travel about 6 billion kilometers.
