Hello all editors and users of the Astroneer Wiki! We are in the process of updating and switching over to use the new Fandom Desktop skin on the wiki. There will be many changes over the coming days, but the main goal is to keep the wiki feeling the same, as much as we can! If you notice any issues once the swap is made, please post them to the Admin Noticeboard so we can address it right away. We are also going to be completing the update to the Astroneer Wiki:Style guide, so there is a more up to date guide on how to style the wiki going forward.
Laterite is a soil or mineral layer high in aluminum and iron ores that is easily cut into bricks for construction. This term in its etymology comes from the Latin "later" (brick) and the suffix "ite" to form the name of the minerals in mineralogy.
