Arrival Station on SkyTown, Elysia features a large Communications satellite of elaborate design off in the distance. Scanning it reveals that it has been looping the same signal for 203.8 years prior to the events of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. After Samus collects the Boost Ball, she can use it to re-energize a Kinetic Orb Cannon, which launches her to the top of the satellite. Here, she can find an Energy Tank, as well as another Cannon to launch herself back to the pod containing the Arrival Station.
