NASA MEDIA BFG ON PSYCHE MISSION, June 24, 2022, virtual, 2:00 pm ET

This morning NASA announced that it will hold a media telecon today, June 24, 2022, at 2:00 pm ET, to discuss the Psyche mission. The launch of Psyche, a mission to study an asteroid made of metal, on a SpaceX Falcon Heavy already has been delayed from August 1, the beginning of its launch window, due to software problems.

According to a NASA post on the Psyche website two days ago, NASA is evaluating whether it will be ready for the current launch window, September 20-October 11.

The telecon will air on NASA Live.

Participants are:

  • Lori Glaze, director of NASA’s Planetary Science Division at NASA Headquarters in Washington
  • Laurie Leshin, director of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California
  • Lindy Elkins-Tanton, Psyche mission principal investigator, Arizona State University
