One of the first steps in understanding the geology of Psyche is for the Psyche science team to find out more about collisions and crater formation on metallic asteroids. Join Psyche Mission Science Team Co-Investigator Simone Marchi of the Southwest Research Institute as he explains how impact experiments are conducted at NASA’s Ames Vertical Gun Range and what we can learn about the cratering process to further understand and interpret the geology of Psyche.
