NASA Psyche Mission


Psyche, also a robotic mission, is targeted to launch in October of 2023, arriving at the asteroid in 2030, following an Earth gravity assist spacecraft maneuver in 2024 and a Mars flyby in 2025.

This is very disappointing.  2030 is a long time away.  I can forgive the 6 year build time, but 7 years to Jupiter is crazy.  We need a faster propulsion system to get us to the gas giants.
