NASA's Lucy spacecraft is on a mission to visit Jupiter's ancient Trojan asteroids, but it took time during its journey to capture some poignant views of its home planet.⁠⁠NASA's stark black-and-white image from Oct. 15 shows our marble with mottled clouds against the dark backdrop of space from 380,000 miles (620,000 kilometers) away. The images came from a crucial moment in Lucy's travels as it headed for Earth for the first of three planned gravity assists. ⁠⁠Lucy is in this for the long haul. It launched in late 2021 and its primary mission is set to last for 12 years. NASA likens the asteroids it will study to fossils that will offers scientists a way to study the formation of the solar system.⁠⁠Tap the link in our bio to see more images from NASA's Lucy spacecraft and read more.⁠⁠#Space #Science #Earth #NASA
