An infographic with a dark background representing space. Stars and gradient colors represent nebulas. An illustrated Psyche spacecraft is on the left upper corner, with its fully equipped body (bus) on its right. The dimensions (height, width) of the spacecraft is shown. Below the spacecraft is an IKEA-manual like diagram about the components of the spacecraft (propulsion system, gamma ray & neuron spectrometer, X-band antenna, magnetometer, imagers). On the right of the infographic lies an illustrated asteroid, with two annotations about its chemical components (main chemical composition and surface elements composition).
