NASA’s Psyche Mission Will Survey Metallic Asteroid Worth an Estimated $10-Quintillion

A SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket will launch a spacecraft to survey 16 Psyche, one of the largest objects in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Researchers have discovered that it could be worth $10-quintillion dollars ($10,000,000,000,000,000,000 – 19 zeros). However, this mission has to clear three more phases, starting with Phase D, which includes final spacecraft assembly/testing, along with the August 2022 launch.
