About Cobalt Industries Starlight Reactor
My fellow engineers, Cobalt Industries, have left their power plant abandoned, break into the reactor, and see what they left behind.

In 1953 Cobalt Industries set out to break the fusion power code to create a cheaper and more reliable power source. The Russian government approved the project codenamed 'Starlight.' Cost overruns mounting over 8.5 billion RUB and technological hurdles brought the project to an end in 1967. One of the most predominant being that the magnetic containment needed to keep the superheated plasma from destroying the entire facility at any useful power was of major concern. An incident with a small test reactor called 'Numa' ended with the destruction of site 19 and radioactive contamination in a 10-mile radius. To this day, the project remains canceled indefinitely until newer technology can contain the 100 million-degree plasma needed to create nuclear fusion.
