An interactive museum exhibit which describes the complex interaction between the Psyche asteroid and satellite spacecraft. Psyche is the largest asteroid in our solar system and NASA's Psyche mission involves sending a spacecraft to the asteroid in order to study it's make-up. What makes the Psyche asteroid of unique interest it is hypothesized to be the exposed nickel-iron core of an early planet. The museum display will communicate the science which will be performed during successively closer orbits of the asteroid and the high-tech instruments which will be employed during the mission
