Most industrial drill heads are coated in industrial grade diamonds.

You could develop another version of the drill head at a later date.

Good suggestion, hopefully we'll have a good reason to upgrade and modify the drill later!

Maybe like a mineral extractor as a drill head. Or a new vehicle called like the “Excavator” that is built for drilling.

I got a fever, and the only prescription is more drill head!

(Don't mind me, just being silly. It's been a long day and I can't wait to take my 8-minute commute home and start the weekend!)

I did notice in the PAX stream, while discussing terrain 2.0, they mentioned that the terrain would be layered and get harder and harder the closer you got to the core. I think that upgraded drill heads will probably be able to dig through the harder terrain, requiring better drills to get to the core of the planet.

That’s a really good idea! I like it. +1 that.

Well, it makes sense. Assuming all the planets are solid at the core, they might eventually have an impenetrable layer. That, or it could just be so hot approaching a liquid outer core Astroneers must either turn back, or perish.
