NASA captures a rare asteroid worth 70,000 times that of the world economy

The US space agency NASA has captured a rare Massachusetts-sized asteroid orbiting Mars and Jupiter – $ 10,000 quadrillion.

A metal rarity, 16 Psych, was discovered by NASA’s Hubble Telescope in 1852, and was eventually discovered by Earth’s citizens.

The Journal of Planetary Science has published a new study indicating that the structure of an asteroid is important for its astronomical value. At 140 miles (225.3 km) in diameter, the psyche is 70,000 times more valuable than the global economy, according to the study. Its value in 2019 was about $ 142 trillion, or enough to buy and sell Jeff Bezos.

The study says the asteroid is made entirely of iron and nickel.

“We’ve seen mostly metallic meteorites, but Psyche is unique in that it could be an asteroid made of iron and nickel,” said Tracy Becker, a planetary scientist and author of a new paper.

According to Becker, the psyche is the remaining core of a planet that never formed properly because it hit objects in our solar system and effectively lost its mantle and surface.

The main asteroid belt in the Solar System orbits at a distance of 230 million miles (370.1 million km) from Earth between Mars and Jupiter.
