Join NASA Psyche Mission Co-Investigator Dr. Tim McCoy as he takes us on a journey from his first geology class to his current role as Curator-in-Charge of the US National Meteorite Collection at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and his role on the Psyche Mission Science Team. Along the way, McCoy highlights the significance of studying a metallic asteroid and what it may be able to tell us about the formation of the solar system and our own planet. It’s the journey of a lifetime, and he didn’t want to miss it.

Psyche is both the name of an asteroid orbiting the Sun between Mars and Jupiter — and the name of a NASA space mission to visit that asteroid, led by Arizona State University.

  1. Imagine being a flat earther… You miss out on SO much cool things that are happening and so much knowledge that we are getting from them. Unfortunately, a lot of the time you don't realize just how much of life you've missed out on until it's very late in life and you spent years ramming your ideas about how you know the Earth is flat. What a miserable existence
