Ad Astra Development Zone History: Historical Literature
The Library module was developed as the most advanced form of a laboratory on Mars. A sprawling enterprise of graduated flasks, bunsen burners, centrifuges, mass spectrometers, and many other scientific instruments. It also holds libraries of historical literature chronicling the AADZ Mars Settlement effort decades ago. It is the current bleeding edge in scientific research on Mars and is famous for its quiet coffee shop and bookstore atmosphere and motif. Leon Dusk is often spotted in one such module.

Library Overview

The Library building holds the first implementation of the Research system. Here you unlock the ability to create Research Papers, which you can either use to research a specific branch of science or perform dusk-rewarding research.
To start, you'll need to write some Research Papers. These Research papers will allow you to perform various tasks in the Library.
Bazaar Coins act as a token of knowledge used in the research and you can purchase Bazaar Coins from the shop using shards.
If you dismantle all of your Libraries, you will lose all of your learned recipes.

Research Papers

You can either craft research papers, purchase them from the marketplace or obtain them via depositing Chapters purchased from Neftyblocks or AtomicHub
You can also read the chapter once a day in your library to gain 1 Research Paper.

The procurement of research papers involves the traditional process of physical paper sealed within a rugged container to prevent damage. The scientific process involves the analysis of building "shards", as it is colloquially known. These shards are fragments of information or an important component.

Dusk-Rewarding Research

After acquiring research papers, you can either perform Dusk-rewarding researches or preform a specific kind of research to unlock high tier recipes. Here's a look at the Dusk-rewarding researches.
Medium-Volatility means that the recipe's rare high amounts are within the 5-10% range.
High-Volatility would mean that the recipe's rare high amounts are within the 1-5% range.
Areology
Exobiology
Human Factors, Dem Bones, Mars Madness
Areology is the specific study of Mars, this research involves taking samples of regolith to replace the expensive martian soil simulants created on Earth and placing them under intense studies. These results are sent back to either universities on Mars itself or back to Earth to be applied in prestigious laboratories.

Human Factors is a research into the comfort and luxuriousness of human settlement on Mars, it also involves proper city planning, architectural research and development of a well functioning city state.
While the other two may have silly names, the research of Dem Bones and Mars Madness are serious conditions.
Dem Bones is the study of the effect that the low gravity has on the structural integrity on our bones. Many incidents have occurred due to lack of exercise on the red planet, making people returning from long term visits on Mars unable to walk on Earth until after extended physical therapy sessions.
Mars Madness is a rarer mental effect that perceiving being on a different planet has on a certain percentage of the population, involving hallucinations, nausea, confusion and short term memory loss. However, the treatment of this effect is progressing well, and soon Mars Madness will be nothing but a footnote. Research at a local CNES site was really exciting, they had invited our research team in and were allowed to view the process in which Mars Madness is treated.

Branch Research

While obtaining Dusk for your research efforts is already great, the proper research system is what the Library is really all about.
After obtaining a recipe, you need to learn it by heading to the shop and purchasing the correlating recipe, this will remove the item from your inventory and allow you to craft that recipe.
You do not need the previous ranks of a recipe in order to learn the higher ranks. For example, you can learn Repair Power Cell III without knowing Repair Power Cell I
You will be able to sell your duplicate researched recipes in the near future!

Circuit Theory
Chemistry research is the study of substances, as in the elements and compounds that make up everything around us. This specific research will allow us further development into the process of power cells. Ever since the recent increase in broken power cell reports, scientists have studied ways to repair them.
As you level up your library, the Repair Power Cell recipe tier that can be researched will be increased as well!

Have you ever owned one of those electrician play sets? They were all the rage in 2050, I remember when I was given one for my birthday, it had a set of simple instructions on how to create a few circuits. Nearly burned the house down that day, but did it ever spark my curiosity over electrics.
It's nice to see us creating our own learning sets on Mars, even if its just to tinker with to see how the different environments and static electricity build up from the thin regolith effects our everyday electronics. These sets of circuit theory kits are going to be incredibly useful for our next generation of aspiring colonists.
