November 27, 2020It's one of the biggest and most valuable rocks tumbling around the asteroid belt. Some people say the amount of metal in the exposed core of 16 Psyche is worth more than the entire economy of Planet Earth. There may even be gold there.
But Psyche is worth much more than its weight in gold to SpaceFab, a small satellite startup with the ultimate goal to build big things in outer space. To SpaceFab, resource rich M-type asteroids like Psyche are absolutely essential to sustaining a space-faring civilization. And if everything falls into place for this scrappy business, SpaceFab will be running space station shipyards on Psyche in the second half of the 21st century and building enormous planet-to-planet luxury liners Buzz Aldrin himself would be proud to pilot. . . .outerspaceland.com/003-SpaceFab-Dreams-Shipyards-Psyche.html
