The NASA Psyche Mission is a robotic journey to a unique metal asteroid orbiting the Sun between Mars and Jupiter. What makes this asteroid unique is that it appears to be the exposed nickel-iron core of an early planet, one of the building blocks of our solar system. The mission was chosen for NASA’s Discovery Program on January 4, 2017. The Psyche mission is led by NASA; the principal investigator at Arizona State University holds primary responsibility for the successful execution of all aspects of the mission. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory is responsible for mission management, operations and navigation. The spacecraft’s solar-electric propulsion chassis will be built by SSL with a payload that includes an imager, magnetometer, and a gamma-ray spectrometer. The mission will launch in 2022. After arriving at the asteroid in 2026, it will spend 21 months in orbit mapping it and studying its properties.
