Asteroid-exploring Lucy spacecraft embarks on 12-year mission


What is expected to be NASA’s longest and most extensive mission has taken off from Florida.
Lucy will be the first spacecraft to study Jupiter’s ancient Trojan asteroids.
It aims to help explain the formation of the solar system and warn of asteroid threats to Earth.
Al Jazeera’s Andy Gallacher reports from Miami, Florida.
