50edae915888c8b - NASA continues to assess that Lucy's solar array can operate healthily

NASA is reviewing Lucy spacecraft data, including using technology to measure how much current the array generates at various spacecraft positions and attitudes, This will enable the team to understand how far the solar panels are deployed from the correct locking position

these technical measures are completely within the capability of the system and do not pose any risk. Any redeployment plan will be considered after completing this latest assessment. Meanwhile, Lucy spacecraft continued to fly along its expected trajectory

Lucy is a probe used by NASA to detect the main asteroid belt and seven asteroids in the Jupiter Trojan belt. These asteroid exploration missions are flying missions. Lucy launched in October 2021 and began a 12-year exploration mission
