There are various ways to die in Astroneer. When you die, you will respawn at the last Shuttle/Habitat you've used. Resources in your inventory will be left on your corpse at the site of your death. You can return to your corpse to retrieve your items. Your last death site will also be marked with a blue way-point.
When you die before retrieving the items from the corpse they will drop on the ground and the corpse will vanish. Each time you die after that some items will be deleted as well.(the more you die the less Items will be at the "original" corpse)
Note that there is a bug when you die near the start habitat it is optional to press "E" to enter for a moment after you die. Entering the habitat during this time will cause your items to be unrecoverable.
Note that there is a bug in multiplayer that will only allow you to respawn at your original Shelter, not any other shuttles or shelters.
