Tractor Beam- a large late-game structure used to generate large amounts of rare ore deposits around a central target. The way it works is that occasionally a meteorite or asteroid would pass by the colony (indicated in chat along with an animation in the sky) and the tractor beam would be able to capture it and divert its trajectory towards a selected radius. The meteorite (or asteroid) would create a large pit on the ground of the planet, with the resources scattered in and around the center of the impact. The tractor beam will automatically try to lock onto passing asteroids so that you don't miss the window if you're working on another part of your colony. If any buildings happen to get damaged or destroyed by the impact, your citizen approval will go down.
Also, will there be moons?
