NASA’s ‘Psyche’ Mission To Quadrillion-Dollar Asteroid Is Go

Post by Doka » 08-04-2023 05:30 PM

The riches of Space travel and so much more! Is something that will forever benefit us humans, but, I am sure there are those, who will never "Get It" Young souls born greedy. : :wink:


In less than 80 days NASA and SpaceX will launch a solar-powered spacecraft on a 2.5 billion miles (four billion kilometers) journey to the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter to reveal the truth about an asteroid called 16 Psyche.

Its unusual composition of iron and nickel has led to speculation that 16 Psyche could be worth about $10,000 quadrillion. Perhaps more importantly, it will give planetary scientists a chance to study an iron core like the one located in the center of the Earth—and uncover a new kind of metal world in the solar system.
NASA Update

In an update from NASA posted online the space agency today said that a team of 30 engineers and technicians are working almost around the clock to get the spacecraft—also called Psyche—ready.

Psyche is scheduled launch atop a SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket from Space Launch Complex 39A at Kennedy Space Center at 10:38 a.m. EDT (7:38 a.m. PDT) on Thursday, October 5, 2023. The launch window stretches to Wednesday, October 25, 2023.

Typically used to launch heavy satellites, Psyche will be the Falcon Heavy’s first interplanetary launch.

Bah humbug!😂 Never trust hugely smart people to carry an umbrella during Monsoon weather.🌧🌧🌧😲

Doka, thanks!

First off we see their guessing game plan going full blast 24/7/365 about the mineral$, diamond$ and gold? Wtfart!😂

Since there's no coal, why go? 😘

Money spent on world hunger and peace amongst our wildly different languages and cultures would be better for all.

One rover to Mars was more than enough in my opinion.

But noooo!👁👁

You said it yourself "Money" and the necessity of the rare minerals, that it is going to require to give us all the good things on your list. Consequences of "Actions" are not always, bad deals, Take for instance, the actions of a few Great Men, Gave Us a County Most of us have enjoyed and grown in for the last over 200 years. At any rate it is simply destined that we break away from being "Earth Bound", approved by earthlings or not.
