NASA will make history by launching the Lucy mission on Saturday, which is the first mission to study the Trojan asteroids. These ancient asteroids are virtually untouched since the birth of our solar system and like fossils on Earth, hold important clues to the past.

Lucy Expert Tom Statler shares the details about the mission. You can watch early Saturday morning at nasa.gov.
