Title: Sending an Instrument to Psyche, the Largest Metal Asteroid in the Solar System

In a few years, an instrument designed and built by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researchers will be flying hundreds of millions of miles through space to explore a rare, largely metal astermore »oid. The Livermore gamma ray spectrometer will be built in collaboration with researchers from the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory for the first-ever visit to Psyche, the largest metal asteroid in the solar system.« less
