NASA Lucy Mission Patch - Collector's Edition
A dazzling 1.75" nickel plated hard enamel pin of NASA's 13th Discovery mission, Lucy, mission patch. The collector's edition comes with the pin and also a beautiful baseball sized mission card, designed by Geoff Barrett. Currently scheduled to launch atop an ULA Atlas V 401 in October 2021, Lucy is destined to study the trojan asteroids that share the same orbit as Jupiter. There is a population of small bodies both trailing and leading Jupiter in order and Lucy will fly by at least 7 of the trojan asteroids during the planned 12 year mission. A beautiful pin to celebrate this amazing mission!
