Asteroid worth $10,000 quadrillion could transform global economy

https://www.rt.com/viral/389697-nasa-mission-10000-quadrillion-asteroid/

NASA scientists are outdoing themselves yet again: by reworking the planned route for a robotic mission to a giant asteroid worth $10,000 quadrillion, they’ve managed to cut costs, launch sooner and arrive four years earlier than planned. Not bad.

The Psyche planetoid, measuring 240km (149 miles) in diameter, is located in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter and is made almost entirely of iron and nickel.

At current market prices, such an asteroid, a truly unique object in our solar system, is estimated to be worth $10,000 quadrillion ($10,000,000,000,000,000,000). That is, if you could successfully tow it into orbit and then mine it (and find someone to buy all of it, of course). For scale, the entire global economy is worth over $74 trillion.

“We challenged the mission design team to explore if an earlier launch date could provide a more efficient trajectory to the asteroid Psyche, and they came through in a big way,” said Jim Green, director of the Planetary Science Division at NASA Headquarters in Washington, as cited in a NASA press release.

“This will enable us to fulfill our science objectives sooner and at a reduced cost,” he added.

The original launch date for the mission was in 2023 with a scheduled arrival sometime in 2030. With the new trajectory, however, it will launch in the summer of 2022 and arrive at the asteroid belt in 2026.

The key to the galactic shortcut is mindblowing in and of itself: By scrapping a planned gravity boost around the Earth, the team of scientists figured out how to avoid any pit stops or paying the gravity toll in passing too close to the sun.

  1. Psyche / personification of the soul as female, or sometimes as a butterfly

    or, the totality of the human consciousness

    Planetoid / Planet-like

    Sounds like a celestial body that has been MKULTRA’d by NASA 🙂

  2. Giving the money to some mining companies on this planet rather than NASA would be a quadrillion times cheaper and actually provide iron of which there is more than we need on earth.
    Whereas NASA will provide and endless psyop of fantasy with pictures and all.

    They are looking for a stash of cash for some more black NWO ops .

  3. An imagined need that will not be met does virtually, hint-hint, provide all kinds of motives or excuses to give money to operations. With virtual reality growing, the actual profit and exchange of money, like bitcoin, is a topography that opens up new virtual markets to be explored. Even for the cryto-robbers. Meanwhile, back on planet earth in every town and village, the actual needs are not being met but exploited by the fantasies of warped minds who have the power and money to hire ISIS or fight ISIS, depending on which way the wind is blowing that day.
