There are 16 milestones in Surviving Mars (not to be confused with Achievements). Each Milestone achieved grants Research.png Research points and Score and accessed by the circle-with-a-dot button at the bottom right of the screen.

Score is determined by the Sol when a Milestone is achieved . It is then multiplied by the Difficulty Challenge percentage, which is determined by the starting map settings.

In Space Race only one colony can achieve a Milestone. Rival Colonies can be delayed from achieving Milestones through Covert Ops.
