Fullerene is a Rare Resource that can only be acquired by sending Research Modules by Rockets on Space Missions to Carbon Asteroids, Oily Asteroids, or other destinations to discover it. A Cargo Bay must be installed to return the resource after it has been discovered. A single cargo bay may return with less than 1 kg of fullerene, so multiple trips or multiple cargo bays will be needed.
Because its formula is C60 (60 carbon atoms), it is a buckyball, broadly speaking a "type" of fullerene.
