Sky farms are fantastically beautiful, with their kilometer long

networks of glass framed in grids of metal, and the sunlight
shining through jungles of vegetation inside. When one of them
catches the light, you can see the refracted beauty for miles;
they are life-giving stars on a desolate planet … gardens on
the wing.

Launch a hydroponics satellite into orbit around Planet.

The nutrients bonus is halved for bases without Aerospace Complexes. A base can utilize one Hydroponics for each unit of population.

Sky Hydroponics Labs can be destroyed 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.
