Psyche mission: American space agency NASA's mission Psyche is going to be launched today. Earlier it was to take off on October 5, but after a delay of about a week it is going ahead. The mission will be launched from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. 'Psyche' is an asteroid, which is considered precious. It is estimated that this asteroid may contain iron, nickel and gold worth 10,000 quadrillion dollars. Remember that there are 15 zeros in a quadrillion. This is the number coming after trillion.

According to the information, Asteroid Psyche is in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter in space. Its distance from the Earth is about 3.5 billion kilometers. According to NASA, its mission will revolve around Psyche for about 26 months. He will take images of the asteroid. Will collect data to help scientists understand more about its history and structure.

It was the 16th asteroid discovered from Earth. Psyche was discovered by Italian astronomer Annibale De Gasparis in the year 1852. It was named after the goddess of the soul in ancient Greek mythology. Its size is estimated to be 226 kilometers. The shape of Saiki is like a potato.

Asteroid Psyche contains precious metals. It is estimated that it is so valuable that if it is distributed equally on the earth, then everyone can become a billionaire. NASA Administrator Bill Nelson has expressed hope that the space agency may find diamonds and pearls on that asteroid.

NASA will not bring anything to Earth!

According to media reports, the US space agency does not plan to extract precious metals from Psyche.
Mission Principal Investigator Lindy Elkins-Tanton said that there is no technology to bring Psyche back to Earth. If this is done, there may be a collision between the Earth and this asteroid. Even if the attempt is successful, there will be so much stock in the metal market that its value will become zero.
