NASA’s Psyche mission is preparing for a 1.5 billion-mile (2.4 billion-kilometer) solar-powered trip to the metal-rich asteroid of the same name. In a cleanroom at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in February 2022, twin solar arrays were attached to the spacecraft body, unfolded lengthwise, and then re-stowed as tests on Psyche continue. The five-panel, cross-shaped solar arrays are the largest ever installed on a spacecraft at JPL, so engineers had to test them one at a time. Psyche is expected to launch no earlier than August 2022. About an hour after launch, the arrays will deploy and latch into place in a sequential process that will take 7 ½ minutes per array. They will then provide power for the journey to Psyche and for operating the three science instruments. In total, the solar arrays are 37 feet (11.3 meters) long. Only the three center panels can be deployed at JPL; the two cross panels on each wing are deployed using specialized equipment at Maxar Technologies in Palo Alto, California, where the arrays and spacecraft chassis were built. When they deploy fully in flight, the spacecraft will be about the size of a singles tennis court. Psyche is scheduled to arrive at the asteroid in 2026 and spend nearly two years making increasingly close orbits? Scientists think the asteroid Psyche could be part of the core of a planetesimal, the building block of an early rocky planet, which would provide a unique opportunity to study how planets like our own Earth formed.

This diagram depicts a theoretical phenomenon called ferrovolcanism, where metallic asteroids erupt molten iron in a class of asteroids called pallasites. The ferrovolcanism might result when pockets of melted alloy rise to the surface. An upcoming NASA space mission to the asteroid Psyche may allow scientists to confirm their theory.

If you wanted to do a forensic study of the Solar System, you might head for the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. That’s where you can find ancient rocks from the Solar System’s early days. Out there in the cold vacuum of space, far from the Sun, asteroids are largely untouched by space weathering. Space scientists sometimes refer to asteroids—and their meteorite fragments that fall to Earth—as time capsules because of the evidence they hold.

Join the journey as NASA’s Psyche mission team launches in 2022 to explore a unique metallic asteroid orbiting the sun between Mars and Jupiter. The asteroid, likely made largely of nickel-iron metal mixed with rock, could contain metal from the core of a planetesimal (the building block of an early rocky planet) and may offer a unique window into the violent history of collisions and accretion that created the terrestrial planets like Earth. Arizona State University leads the Psyche mission. JPL, which is managed by Caltech for NASA, is responsible for the mission’s overall management, system engineering, integration and test, and mission operations. Maxar Technologies in Palo Alto, California, provided the high-power solar electric propulsion spacecraft chassis. For more info about NASA's #MissionToPsyche, go to: NASA's Psyche Mission page
Scheduled to launch on Oct. 5, 2023, from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the Psyche mission is a journey to a metal asteroid orbiting the Sun between Mars and Jupiter. What makes the asteroid Psyche unique is that it may be the partial core of a planetesimal (one of the building blocks of a rocky planet) or could be primordial material that never melted. The mission aims to help answer fundamental questions about Earth’s own metal core and the formation of our solar system. The spacecraft also will carry NASA’s Deep Space Optical Communications (DSOC), a technology demonstration that aims to show how lasers could increase data transmission rates far beyond the capacity of current radio frequency systems used on spacecraft today. Tune in as we hear from experts behind the mission. JPL Director Laurie Leshin will provide opening remarks, and briefing participants are expected to include: Lori Glaze, director, Planetary Sciences Division, NASA Headquarters in Washington Lindy Elkins-Tanton, principal investigator of Psyche, Arizona State University Henry Stone, project manager, Psyche, JPL Abi Biswas, project technologist for DSOC, JPL Serkan Bastug, mission manager, Launch Services Program, NASA Kennedy For more information on the Psyche mission, visit or follow #MissionToPsyche on social medi

Let's find out in today's episode of Great SpaceX. In the early hours of Oct. 6, workers transported NASA’s Psyche spacecraft to the SpaceX hangar at Launch Complex 39A at the agency’s Kennedy Space Center in preparation for launch. Earlier last week, technicians completed encapsulation of the spacecraft, along with the DSOC (Deep Space Optical Communications) technology demonstration, inside a clean room at the Astrotech Space Operations facility in Titusville, Florida. The fairings will protect the spacecraft from aerodynamic pressure and heat during launch. After the rocket’s second stage climbs to a high enough altitude, the fairings will separate from the vehicle and return to Earth. Soon, technicians will mate the spacecraft to a SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket in preparation for launch, which is targeted for 10:16 a.m. EDT, Thursday, Oct. 12, 2023. Psyche will be NASA’s first primary science mission launched to orbit by a Falcon Heavy rocket, and the second interplanetary mission SpaceX has launched on behalf of NASA. NASA’s Launch Services Program certified the rocket for use with the agency’s most complex and highest priority missions in early 2023 at the conclusion of a 2.5 year effort.

In less than 24 hours from now (October 11, 2023), tomorrow morning, a joint mission between SpaceX and NASA will take place. The special payload named Psyche, will utilize the power of the Falcon Heavy to travel around 2.2 billion miles to a metal-rich asteroid. Here, orbiting the sun between Jupiter and Mars, it will study the exposed nickel-iron core of an early planet, one of the building blocks of our solar system. However, before it can begin its long journey, the Falcon Heavy using reusable boosters and even the fairings, needs to place it on the correct trajectory. The spacecraft is quite big weighing 6,056 pounds (2,747 kilograms) at liftoff. What’s even more demanding is its initial placement into a heliocentric orbit, one around the sun. By now, teams at SpaceX are completing some of the final preparations for launch. Assuming this launch goes well, it will only add to the busiest year yet for Falcon Heavy. Here I will go more in-depth into tomorrow’s launch, the significance of this mission, the reused hardware, and more. -Full article here For more space-related content check out - Credit: SpaceX's Youtube channel - Nasa' Youtube channel Chapters: 0:00 - Intro 0:55 - Final Launch Prep 3:50 - Asteroid Bound

On OctOn Oober 13th, 2023 at 10:19 AM Eastern (07:19 AM Pacific), NASA’s Psyche mission successfully launched atop a SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket from Launch Pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. This spacecraft is now on its way to rendezvous with the M-type asteroid of the same name, an object in the Main Asteroid Belt almost entirely composed of metal. This metallic asteroid is thought to be the remnant of a planetoid that lost its outer layers, leaving behind a core of iron-nickel and precious metals. By studying this object, scientists hope to learn more about the formation of rocky planets.
NASA is launching its Psyche asteroid probe on a SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket Friday (October 13, 2023), setting off a five-and-a-half-year voyage to a rare, metal-rich asteroid that may hold clues about how the cores of rocky planets like Earth first formed. #news #livenews #politics CBS News Streaming Network is the premier 24/7 anchored streaming news service from CBS News and Stations, available free to everyone with access to the Internet.
