Aluminum is one of the most important resources to have, both when starting out, and even in the later game. At first, it may seem like a hard resource to get, but I will show you in this article how easy it is to get aluminum in astroneer.
Before you make aluminum, you first need laterite. Laterite is found in the caves of the starting planet.
