Although scientists and engineers at NASA may be the first people to come to mind when thinking about a space mission, there are many different types of individuals and organizations that need to contribute and collaborate for success. This team is investigating and visualizing for the public (e.g. web interactive, map, etc) what people, organizations, and supply chains make the NASA Psyche Mission possible.

This work was created in partial fulfillment of Michigan State University Capstone Courses “AESC 410”. The work is a result of the Psyche Student Collaborations component of NASA’s Psyche Mission (https://psyche.asu.edu). “Psyche: A Journey to a Metal World” [Contract number NNM16AA09C] is part of the NASA Discovery Program mission to solar system targets.
