Going where no spacecraft has gone before, NASA’s Lucy mission will embark on a 12-year journey to Jupiter’s Trojan asteroids. As time capsules to the early solar system, these ancient remnants could give scientists vital clues about how the planets formed 4.5 billion years ago. Join mission experts on Friday, October 15 at 3:30 p.m. EDT as they take you behind-the-scenes at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center ahead of the Lucy spacecraft launch on Saturday. Submit questions using #askNASA to have them answered live during the show.
Meet the experts:

Before working on the Lucy mission, Carly was on NASA’s New Horizons team when it flew past Pluto. When Carly isn’t working, she enjoys spending time with her husband, two young kids and participating in triathlons.
Wil Santiago is the Deep Space Exploration Engineer at Lockheed Martin Space. His favorite part of the job is working with a team that helps design, develop and fly robotic missions that allow humanity to explore our solar system and beyond and continue pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.
