Erchius Mining Facility is the first instanced mission (not counting the optional introduction), possessing a Difficulty Tier of 2. Completing it is required for The Erchius Mining Facility quest to repair your ship's FTL drive using Erchius Crystals. To complete the mission players must defeat the Erchius Horror boss and activate the drilling machine to the right of the boss chamber.

Penguin Pete at the shipyard will give you the mission, stating that he needs the Erchius Crystals found there to fix your ship's FTL drive. He then uploads the coordinates to your SAIL. The mission can then be launched from SAIL on your ship.

The mission resets instantly after you die, but there is a checkpoint near the boss fight in a bunker - activating it prevents the mission from resetting on death.

Secret

In the area right before the Horror, there is a side room accessible only through the Morphball tech. This location has 3 Lunar Crates and a passage that requires 2 hidden levers to be opened. Inside the secret room, there is another chest with the Left Translation Wheel and a sign that translates to "It will return", which is a warning that The Ruin will come back.

It is possible to glitch yourself into this area by crouching next to the hole you would Morphball down and repeatedly moving left or right. This will cause you to slowly "crawl" through the hole. This strategy is time-consuming, and it is possible to suffocate yourself in certain positions, however this is very unlikely.
