In a dream-like fantasy, every person on earth might become a billionaire if the US space agency (NASA) mission succeeded in discovering an asteroid containing a huge amount of gold.
NASA has confirmed that it is looking forward to discovering the asteroid Psyche on a mission that it will launch in 2022 to explore the origins of the solar system, according to Al Arabiya Net, quoting the British newspaper, The Sun.
She stated that the asteroid was discovered in the late nineteenth century, noting that it is located between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter and is made of solid metal.
Also, it is believed that the asteroid contains, in addition to gold, large amounts of platinum, iron and nickel.
It has been estimated that Seiki’s various minerals are worth 8000 quadrillion pounds, which means that if returned to Earth, it would destroy commodity prices and lead to the collapse of the global economy.
For its part, NASA said that the spacecraft assigned to the mission will work for 21 months to map and study 16 properties of the asteroid using a multispectral imager, a gamma-ray neutron spectrometer, a magnetometer, and a radio (to measure gravity).”
NASA believes Psyche is an asteroid that survived violent interplanetary collisions that were common when the solar system was forming, which means it can tell us how the cores of Earth and other terrestrial planets formed.
