NASA won’t cancel Psyche asteroid mission, targeting launch in October 2023

NASA’s Psyche asteroid mission pulled its head off the chopping block.

The Psyche spacecraft was supposed to blast off towards a strange metallic space rock in the main asteroid belt, between August and October of this year, of the same name. But issues with Psyche’s flight program made it impossible to get through that window, prompting NASA to announce in June that it had postponed takeoff and began a “continuation/end” review of the mission.
