Hey Space World -- I'm the Principal Investigator of the NASA Psyche Mission, and I hope you are interested in playing with our Psyche model -- get creative! We've never seen the metal world Psyche as more than a point of light, but in 2022, we are launching a NASA mission to visit and learn about it. Peter Rubin and I worked together for a couple of years to make a model of Psyche that incorporates both the best shape model for the body that has been created using radar from Arecibo Observatory (Shepard+ 2017) and details of the surface, including faults and craters, based on our best existing physical and chemical models. When we get to Psyche in 2026, we'll find out how close we were! Check out the videos on https://www.nasa.gov/psyche and the big 3D print here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bxrruz_Dxk !

We'll have to wait 9 years and then we'll have Psyche Rev.1 with the updated information ! Space travel is like that, warp speed stubbornly refuses to let itself be invented :-))

Best of luck in your endeavours, and do keep us posted, don't wait 9 years !!

Warp speed! I want it!
Yes we'll have more...it'll be a little while but we'll get the spacecraft uploaded!
