Toolkit Exploring the Process of a Space Mission—From Idea to Flight

Set to launch in the summer of 2022, NASA’s Psyche mission will be the first to explore a world likely made largely of metal. Scientists hope that studying asteroid Psyche will give insights into how Earth’s core and the cores of the other terrestrial planets came to be.

The NASA Psyche Mission Innovation Toolkit includes free online courses based on the real-world science, engineering, technology, and teamwork behind the Psyche mission. Two courses are currently available: In Course 1, “The Process and Lifetime of a Space Mission,” participants will learn about a space mission, from idea to flight. Aspects of the preparation and submission of a proposal, team-building, design, construction, modeling, testing, launching, tracking, and data collection and analyses processes are covered. Course 2, “Inclusive Mindset: Tools for Building Positive Team Culture,” covers strategies for working as part of a diverse team, and techniques for developing a positive, collaborative, inclusive mindset. More courses will be developed throughout the life of the mission.
