KinetX is part of the team on NASA’s Lucy mission destined to explore the Trojan asteroids locked in orbits near Jupiter. Lucy will be the first space mission to study the these primitive bodies, which will revolutionize our understanding of planetary origins and the formation of the Solar System. KinetX engineers will perform the complex navigation of the spacecraft from Earth to flybys of seven asteroids. No other space mission in history has been launched to as many different destinations in independent orbits around our Sun.
