Take part in the creation of the Psyche asteroid at ASU’s Tempe Campus. The myriad of shapes, textures, and colors on Psyche allows space and #MissionToPsyche crafters the opportunity to engage in the science of Psyche by crocheting, knitting, sewing, braiding, latch hooking, etc. to feature individual aspects of the Psyche asteroid (e.g., craters, metal spires, flaps, offset cracks) that, when combined, can be exhibited together in an interesting and creative expression of the unique Psyche surface.
Materials applicable for creation (see examples)
- Strips of fabric
- Other textiles: Anything that will allow you to create a textured piece of the Psyche asteroid
Feel free to create a textured Psyche surface no smaller than 4 inches x 4 inches and no bigger than 12 inches x 12 inches, you can make your creation into a square, circle, oval, etc. (See examples for size and shape ideas)
Once you have completed your piece of the Psyche asteroid, you will be able to submit your creation to the #MissionToPsyche Student Collabs group at the Arizona State Tempe Campus where it will be received and assembled into the overall asteroid display put on by student workers of the Psyche mission.
All pieces are to be addressed to the location below
