Completing a research project will unlock blueprints for new or improved machinery and upgrades as well as more advanced research projects.
More advanced research projects with the description "Requires Laboratory" must be completed through the use of the Laboratory, and will require items such as Experimental Pods, and an extremely high amount of energy to complete.
