Component

Niobium

Collected on planet surfaces and from asteroids.

Niobium, Nb, atomic number 41. Melting point 2750K. This element is often used in alloys, but its properties also make it useful for super-alloys needed for high temperature and extreme pressure applications. It's also used in electroceramic applications and for superconductors.

How to get components

Components may be obtained in locations noted. Higher rarity components can be usually obtained from bigger and/or more dangerous ships and locations (like T9 for transportation ships, Anaconda for combat ships, well defended settlements with Data points and so on).
