NASA has announced a mission that could make every single person on Earth a billionaire. The Psyche mission is set to survey the 140-mile-wide Psyche asteroid that orbits the sun between Mars and Jupiter, and scientists say it looks like the exposed core “of an early planet,” made of nickel, iron, and gold.

The estimated value of the asteroid is $10,000 quadrillion, or $10,000,000,000,000,000,000. To put it in perspective, if the asteroid could be mined it would dwarf the economy of the entire planet, which is around $74 trillion. The mission is looking to launch next year.
