Satellite


Overview

    Satellites are objects you can build and launch into orbit using Satellite Bay on a rocket that can perform useful actions such as collect energy and data, or even be used to (Some day) terraform a planet.

Satellites are built in the Satellite Builder. The machine will take components and a Satellite id chip and produce a satellite and a programmed Satellite id chip.
