    4. Name one commodity that can be refined from four of the five ore types.
    Answers: Iron or Silicon
    There were a number of sources to loo this up, but our source was TRI-Databank where you would have had to look at each of the Ore Types, looked at the commodity yields and tallied results.

    5. Who licensed the fusion technology to Venurian Prospecting that is used in the Deep Radar?
    Answer: Cromforge Enterprises
