So I was thinking if I had a few Starships and a couple billion dollars what space mission I would design? What I came up with is the asteroid Psyche. It's a huge metal asteroid. Even though it's much smaller than Ceres it has a similar gravity due to it density. The asteroid puts the phrase "It's a gold mine" to shame. Seems to me that it should be target number 1 for manned missions to the asteroid belt? Anyone else think this is a good idea? With capable spacecraft coming online soon it seems within the realm of discussion.

Ooh you could certainly write a compelling proposal to take on this mission. 'We need them shiny metals in space, folks!'
