Asteroide Psyche

This is the asteroid Psyche, it has been the subject of study by the MIT technicians and they have managed to make the most accurate map of the surface of this asteroid, by the way, this asteroid is the one that the media periodically talk about saying that it is the asteroid with large gold reserves that multiply our amounts of gold and platinum the most valuable asteroid and the treasure we have in the solar system and certainly if it is a metallic asteroid and has large amounts of metals especially iron.


Psyche es un asteroide gigante de 210 kilómetros de diámetro y que está orbitando entre las órbitas de Marte y Júpiter en el cinturón de asteroides, se creía inicialmente que era el resto de un antiguo planeta que se desintegró quedando el núcleo; los núcleos de los planetas están formados por metales especialmente de hierro, por ejemplo, la tierra es de hierro y níquel, sin embargo, un planeta o un protoplaneta porque hay que aclarar esta diferencia los proto planetas son los embriones de planetas, objetos que van desde 500 kilómetros de diámetro hasta casi el tamaño de nuestra luna.




The important thing about a protoplanet is not so much the diameter, but rather that it begins to differentiate thanks to gravity the layers where the denser materials are concentrated in the center and also gravity makes them rounded, the above is The map that MIT has made of this asteroid is one of the images of this science week, since it was well believed that Psyche was that metallic core of an ancient proto planet that was destroyed during the beginning of the solar system.

It was believed that it was the core of a protoplanet that was destroyed at the beginning of the solar system, there was talk of a planet the size of Mars that was destroyed and that its core is precisely this asteroid that remains metallic, although from the latest research that has been they have done, because there is a lot of doubt about that theory and it is thought that it has an evolution similar to that of other asteroids, although recent research does not explain why it has so much metal either, it is something that we will know in a few years, since NASA is going to send an explorer ship that will be launched no earlier than September 20, 2022 and is expected to reach the asteroid in early 2026.


The above is an illustration of how this asteroid could be because it turns out that later a map and study made by MIT indicates the existence of rocky regions that could be traces of an ancient mantle with a composition similar to the outermost rock layer of the earth or mars, which makes this asteroid similar to the planets, but it also shows characters that contain metallic material, which supports the idea that the asteroid could have had eruptions of metallic lava, that must have been at first while it cooled its old nucleus.
