NASA ready to dig into ‘golden meteor’ that could make everyone on earth a billionaire

How would we even handle an injection of $10,000 quadrillion to the world economy?

Treasure hunters have long been digging into the earth and diving deep into our oceans in order to find their next big score, but perhaps they should have been looking to the sky this whole time.

We hear a whole lot about buried “pirate treasure”, and maps purporting to show the location of Confederate gold.  Heck, there are even US television programs whose sole purpose is to push the idea that Oak Island, off the coast of Nova Scotia, is the hiding place for untold treasures possibly tied to the Knights Templar.

On top of this, underwater treasure hunters are utilizing the latest pieces of technology in order to raise untold gold from shipwrecks the world over.

NASA is eyeing up a nearby asteroid that contains enough gold to make everyone on Earth a billionaire.

Psyche 16 is nestled between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter and is made of solid metal.

As well as gold, the mysterious object is loaded with heaps of platinum, iron and nickel.

In total, it’s estimated that Psyche’s various metals are worth a gargantuan $10,000 quadrillion.

NASA is hoping to probe the asteroid in 2026, but there are concerns about what this injection of wealth would mean for the world at large.

Scott Moore, who heads up EuroSun Mining, said the sheer amount of gold in the asteroid threatens to throw the gold industry into chaos.

“The ‘Titans of Gold’ now control hundreds of the best-producing properties around the world,” he told Oil Price.

“But the 4-5 million ounces of gold they bring to the market every year pales in comparison to the conquests available in space.”

NASA’s plans for Psyche 16 do not currently call for any mining, however, with the space agency focusing on a scientific analysis of the space rock.
