Made from iron and nickel an asteroid is being observed by us. It is a very large object in our belt measuring approximately 100+ kilometres across. Consequently, scientists think it is what is left of a planet after collisions to leave it just at its core and lost its mantle and crust. What is interesting is they estimate it is made up of iron and nickel. Estimated at a value of 10,000 Quadrillion dollars the economy of our whole world’s worth. Although we are watching it through telescopes now. Subsequently, we plan to send an unmanned ship to visit it in two years time.
Presently it is between Mars and Jupiter about three times the distance between us and the sun. It is interesting in that it is that we have not encountered such an asteroid like this before. It can tell us a lot about our own history
