As you commence with the main story line of No Man's Sky, there will come a point where Apollo tells you to expand your base and recruit others. This will then send you on the 'Scientific Research' secondary mission, which will eventually reward you with a blueprint for the Heat Capacitor. The blueprint can also be purchased from the Synthesis Laboratory for 250 Nanites.
