Known uses

Mesosiderites are a source of Materials. They can be found on landfall worlds and detected with an SRV's Wave Scanner.

Mesosiderite drops "rare", "common" and "very common" elements. These are represented on the wave scanner as 1 bar, close to the bottom.

When they are destroyed by weapons fire from a ship or SRV they explode into chunks of materials, which can be collected using a ship or SRV's Cargo Scoop.
