Red-hot iron, white-hot iron, cold-black iron; an iron taste,

Launch a mining satellite into orbit around Planet’s first Moon, Nessus.

The minerals bonus is halved for bases without Aerospace Complexes. A base can utilize one Mining Station for each unit of population.

Mining stations can be destroyed by an asteroid strike or by other factions using Orbital Defense Pods.

The launch of a faction’s first satellite enables them to map all unexplored portions of Planet.

Can only be launched from a base which already has an Aerospace Complex or by a faction that controls The Space Elevator.
