Planetary Research is a type of research that is unlocked after destroying six planets.

By sending a Scientist to the current planet, the player can gather soil samples that will give random bonuses until the current planet is destroyed. On certain planets, gathering soil samples also has a chance to yield Minerals that give permanent bonuses.

Soil samples can be gathered up to 5 times per planet and their effects are multiplicative.

After entering a Black Hole, the bonus from Planetary Research for the current planet is lost and the limit on gathering soil samples is reset.

In the Planetary Research Lab, only one action can be active at a time — either gathering soil samples or travelling to/from planets.
