Article: Asteroid worth £3 TRILLION in precious metals set to pass Earth on Sunday - and YOU can watch it live
X-type asteroids are composed primarily of metal, and appear to be the remnants of large asteroids that fully separated into core and mantle.
Other cool things about this article:

Interactive map of the solar system showing asteroid locations (not to scale)

Video clip about the asteroid.

And a "box" with an interview about the one with "our name on it."

It is so SF to be thinking about mining an asteroid.
