The next move of the American Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) could mean the collapse of the global economy …
Because NASA has started the countdown to go to 16 Psyche asteroids, which are valued at 10 quintillion dollars. The space agency’s plan is to get here in 2026.
MORE VALID THAN THE WORLD ECONOMY
According to reports from the British newspaper Daily Mail, the 200-kilometer-wide asteroid is more valuable to the entire world economy. The total value of our planet’s global economy is only about $ 75 trillion.
Experts warn that this project may cause drastic fluctuations in the global economy in the long run.
WHAT ARE PRECIOUS METALS?
There are precious metals such as iron, nickel, gold, platinum, copper, cobalt, iridium and redium buried in the meteorite.

NASA, which wants to send a spacecraft to the asteroid, does not yet know how to get the precious materials here on our planet.
Space mining is considered the biggest business of this century. It is currently very expensive to bring the materials from the asteroid, located between Jupiter and Mars, to our planet.
However, with the development of technology, the cost of space travel is expected to decline and space mining to become mainstream.
JAPAN’S FIRST SUCCESS
To date, only once has material been brought to Earth from an asteroid. The Japanese Space Agency’s Hayabusa spacecraft was able to deliver a few pieces of dust from asteroid 25143 Itokawa to Earth in 2010.
Scientists plan to bring asteroids closer to Earth with electric solar ion motors to facilitate the transport of matter.
With this method, it is possible to collect orbiting meteorites as a group of rock and create a kind of second moon.
