NASA recently discovered 16 Psyche or Psyche 16 asteroid using the Hubble Telescope. If the estimates are correct this metal and nickel asteroid could be valued more the $10,000 Quadrillion, more than the economy of all the countries on the earth combined.

NASA has also launched Psyche mission which will see a spacecraft visiting the 16 Psyche asteroid's orbit by 2026, this mission maybe similar to one NASA carried on the Bennu asteroid recently. The Psyche 16 is located inside the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.
