If all goes according to plan, between 2027 and 2033, Lucy will then fly past six Trojan asteroids, including three different asteroid subclasses and two objects that rotate around each other. NASA has said that "no other space mission in history has been launched to as many different destinations in independent orbits around our sun."

The mission's targets include C-type, D-type, and P-type asteroids, each of which will help scientists better understand the solar system's genesis, according to SwRI.
