My base in RimWorld doesn't have very fertile ground outside. It's mostly sand, and incapable of sustaining my crops.
I realize I can research Hydroponics so I can grow crops. The problem is, I don't know how to actually research anything. I have a research station, I have someone (a scientist) tasked with research, I even have Hydroponics selected as my research subject. Nothing's happening. I tried prioritizing Research on my scientist, but that didn't do anything.
How exactly do I research something?
