Product Description

The asteroid 16 Psyche is a $10,000 quadrillion hunk of metal orbiting between Jupiter and Mars.

In January 2016, NASA approved an ASU proposed mission to Psyche, which is scheduled to launch in 2023.

Psyche has been observed from Earth using a number of methods to reveal its basic shape (Shepherd et al., 2016), but scientists only have concepts of what an all-metal asteroid would really look like up close.  To develop these concepts further, the ASU School of Earth and Space Exploration worked with motion picture illustrator Peter Rubin of Iron Rooster Studios to produce a 3D model of what Psyche might look like up close.

This is a full 50mm model of the conceptual Psyche model offered in a variety of materials.
