NASA Psyche Mission: Charting a Metallic World


In this artist’s rendition, we explore a metallic world named Psyche, an asteroid that offers a unique window into the building blocks of planet formation. The NASA Psyche mission launches in 2022 and will arrive at the asteroid Psyche, which orbits the Sun between Mars and Jupiter, in 2026. The spacecraft, also named Psyche, will spend 21 months orbiting the asteroid, mapping it and studying its properties. The mission is led by Principal Investigator Lindy Elkins-Tanton of Arizona State University. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory is responsible for the mission’s overall management, system engineering, integration and test, and mission operations. Maxar Technologies is providing a high-power solar electric propulsion spacecraft chassis.

  1. Came here because I see you guys turned off the comments on all videos that are close to the debacle with the VP. The most cringe thing I have ever seen, had to look away many times. The most popular ticket in American history, huh, fascinating how well that is reflected. Just look at the "likes" ratio. Just a coincidence, saying otherwise will get you charged with the high crime of wrong-think.
    Edit: I love NASA and if this post is removed then at least one person saw it.
