Psyche spacecraft illustration (NASA) NASA is delaying the launch of the Psyche asteroid mission by a week. NASA said late Thursday that delaying the launch to Oct. 12 will give engineers more time to properly configure nitrogen cold-gas thrusters used to orient the spacecraft, after concluding those thrusters would operate at higher temperatures than originally planned. There are instantaneous launch windows for the mission daily through Oct. 25. Psyche will travel the the metallic main belt asteroid of the same name, arriving in 2029.
