Lucy Science Team Support Phase B

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

A team of institutions led by Dr. Harold Levison of Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) has been selected by NASA to execute the Lucy Discovery 2014 mission. Lucy is a mission to investigate the Jupiter Trojan Asteroids by conducting multiple fly-bys of these bodies that reside at the Jupiter L4 and L5 Lagrange points. Lucy will explore six Trojans during five flyby encounters, fully capturing the diversity of these important remnants of the early history of the solar system. The project will be led by SwRI. Launch is scheduled to occur in October 2021 and flight operations (Phase E) will span November 2021 through February 2034, by which time the last of the returned data will be placed into archive in the Planetary Data System Small Bodies Node.

This Statement of Work (SOW) lists the activities required of science team member and Terminal Tracking Camera Instrument Scientist Dr. Bell during Phase C/D of the Lucy mission. The period of performance of the SOW is 1 January 2019 through 15 November 2021. Dr. Bell will coordinate their Lucy activities directly with the Principal Investigator, Dr. Harold Levison or his designated activity leader.
