Galactic Research Project: This screen is here purely as an informational screen allowing you to view the progress on the current Galactic Research Projects. Each project is for a different type of technology within the game and allows players to contribute towards speeding these topics to completion. As new projects are introduced the title and status will be updated.

Artifacts: As Players Explore planets (Land / Explore) they stand a chance of locating an Ancient Artifact. These are artifacts left over from ancient races who inhabited the Galaxy centuries before humans found a foothold in these systems.

Studying these Artifacts allows scientists to research new veins of technology. Each Project when completed is handed over to Manufacturing companies that either produce Schematics for Players to craft items or for Stores to sell the end products direct to players.
