At this point all NASA has revealed is that Lucy didn't record a latching.

It could be a latching sensor fault or a deployed but unlatched panel or a partially deployed panel and they are analyzing the data to determine what it is.

once that is determined, They can start to determine how it will affect Lucy.

So we're at a butt clenching moment but not yet a twisted knickers moment.

I wish the best for the boffins (but no pints yet).
