Rare asteroid discovered with an estimated value of $10 quintillion

A new study has given us a closer look at a rare metallic asteroid worth an estimated $10,000,000,000,000,000,000.

Scientists think the asteroid is made of nickel and iron, and that it is the exposed core of another planet. They hope that studying the asteroid will give them a better understanding of the earth’s core.

It’s one of the largest objects floating in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. NASA plans to get a closer look at it by launching an unmanned spacecraft.

The craft is scheduled to launch in 2022 but won’t reach “16 Psyche” until 2026.
