9:40 pm
foreseeable future, a callo it is one of them. alexandra buyers, al jazeera. now what's expected to be nasa's longest and most extensive mission has blasted off from florida. 321. lift or lucy will be the 1st spacecraft to study jupiter's ancient trojan asteroids . it'll take 12 years and cover more than 6000000000 kilometers and aims to help explain the formation of the solar system and one of asteroids threats to earth. let's talk now to cali. how it, she's a planetary scientist, an associate professor at the university of ox, which is also an instrument scientist on the nasa. lucy mission and joins us from cape canaveral in florida. carly many, thanks for joining us here on the new. so what will we learn when they get to be here? what will we learn when they get close to jupiter?
9:41 pm
so we're actually not going to get close to jupiter at saw jupiter is quite a dangerous environment. it's got lots of radiation radiation belts. they want to avoid jupiter. we're going to the asteroids that a near jupiter at near being kind of a relative term space is bake. we're actually the closest to jupiter launch that we're going to be a tire mission. so it tells you just how far away from jupiter we're going to be. but these asteroids are located ahead of jupiter and behind jupiter, it's orbit. so the same distance from the sun just leading and trailing it. and then we're going to go and look at something we've never been cd terribly exciting . so these objects a hard to see from here that doc, this small, their long way from there. and so we really need to go there to see just what's in store for us. it's a mission of true exploration. we don't really know. it sounds like archaeology book instead of going back thousands of years is going back billions of years. you're absolutely right. i've been driving it space archaeology because that's how
9:42 pm
it bills. so these bodies we think, are remnants from solar system formation. they formed the same time as everything else in our solar system, but they're not changed. they're unlike the earth. we have the erosion of processors and it rain, a wind. these bodies have just remained as they formed. and so by understanding what they're made from, how they learn what their centers are made from. we're gonna understand it. an important piece of the jigsaw puzzle in china. fit together how our own solar system hold. lucky ology. definitely here. isa carly, an almost like a, a time capsule element to this. i mean, these asteroids in effect frozen in time. so they will look exactly as they looked when, what i guess the big bang happened. so a little bit after the big bang. so when our stella system formed about 4000000000 years ago, but yeah, an amazing time for me. we think of time captures, huge even sort of a decade log or a longer maybe. but yeah, this is billions of years old. so really excited to see and why they're interesting
9:43 pm
is we don't really know whether they formed at jupiter or maybe deep into our solar system may be near a pluto in the capable. and by finding out what they're made. but we can test our models. and we can use this sort of jigsaw piece of information to fit back together, whether whether everything in our solar system might have moved around, or actually whether things are quite static where they formed where they currently are and they're hung out there. so a really important piece here on earth that does seem to be something of a, a semi space race picking up just now we're talking today tonight here on al jazeera, about one or 2 countries in the middle east, india, israel, china, as well. we've been reporting just the past hour or so about the 3 chinese restaurants going up to their space station. why is it massa is going in this literally going in this particular direction where everyone else is thinking about, oh, space stations. the moon may be mars in a few years. then one of the great things about nasa is it has is very diverse
9:44 pm
portfolio. so we are going to the asteroids. there's actually another nasa mission that's going to be there. a metal asteroid called psyche. one would asli restricts returning asteroid information and particles literally from the surface, the asteroid. but there's also this amazing crude human component to nasir, as well as the ultimate program, a ryan dsl left is being developed. so just because we're going to the asteroid doesn't mean that human spaceflight is getting ignored. it's just it points to the how broad nasa portfolio is that are able to do this and humans based life. okay, great to talk shikari. thank you so much, connie, her joining us from cape canaveral in florida. well, as we were just mentioning there 3 chinese astronauts successfully docking on china's 1st permanent space station, the crew will spend 6 months working on the new platform the longest. any of the countries astronauts are spent up in orbit. the 1st section called chan he launched in april. this mission will focus on testing the living quarters. it's the 2nd of 4
