The Solaris particle collider is an American scientific installation in Antarctica. It can possibly generate enough power to create a black hole. In Minus One, Ratchet was curious as to why the Decepticons would want to steal such a device.
During their pursuit of technology to repair the Omega Lock, Shockwave and a team of Vehicons invaded the base. News soon reached the Autobots, and Optimus Prime and his team arrived to investigate. While Prime himself was kept busy outside battling Predaking, Ultra Magnus and the other Autobots ventured inside, where they were attacked by Vehicon guards.
Though the Autobots managed to catch up with Shockwave and defeat him, Predaking rescued the Decepticon and took off with the technology they'd been after.
