Hitting Rocks for Science Mission

★★★★ Novice

I'm having the issue that I cannot scan the mineral. My cursor turns green and chimes noting that I have something scan-able but when I left click to do so it doesn't register. I am almost complete with this mission and would love to finish it.

@jonypro Hi, thanks for the post. Can you try moving around a bit and try to scan the mineral from another angle? There have been a couple of cases where scanning objects has required Ryder to move around a little, hopefully this helps with your case. 

Thanks for the question.

Yes I've done that but now it seems I can't scan these minerals on any planet. I just need 5 more.

I got 2 on Elaaden but now I the same thing is happening again for the 3rd one in the far west. Except, this time the cursor turns green but when I click nothing happens but shows a box where details should be but it is empty.
