There’s an asteroid out there in space with the moniker, 16 Psyche, that is made entirely of a combination of a metal that would reportedly be worth an astounding 10,000 quadrillion dollars, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens. That’s $10,000 with an extra fifteen zeros and NASA plans on visiting the planetoid.
But, there are no plans “cash in” on the mission. The scientists at the space agency believe this extra-terrestrial treasure hunt will provide a trove of knowledge. They say it can help tell us how the solar system was formed. Besides, NASA says, it does not have the technology to mine the asteroid.
