After a year-long delay from a planned launch window in August 2022, NASA's Psyche Mission is tentatively scheduled to launch in October 2023. An ASU faculty team, announced in 2017, is in charge of the project, and aims to investigate the metal-rich 16 Psyche asteroid. The mission will now follow a new flight path around Mars under the direction of Lindy Elkins-Tanton, the principal investigator and professor at ASU.
