Fullerene is a Rare Resource.
In base game, Fullerene 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.
- Molecular Forge can produce Fullerene from Graphite, Sulfur, and Aluminum:
- It can be harvested on rocket missions from renewable Gilded Asteroid Field.
- After the Temporal Tear Opener has been fired, Fullerene Meteors will periodically fall on that planetoid, containing 3-20 kg of Fullerene.
Molecular Forge produces Super Coolant from Fullerene, Gold, and Petroleum:
Because its formula is C60 (60 carbon atoms), it is a buckyball, broadly speaking a "type" of Fullerene.
