Starting a new game I chose Politician for the leader.

You need to keep your research high throughout to get this, I mainly used outsourcing to keep the overall outsourcing level in a decent place.

To begin with I kept it at 1,000 per SOL once through the initial few research items I stepped up to 1,500 per SOL for most of the game, stepping up to 2,000 for the final three items in the tree. Try to maintain a balance while keeping some cash for emergencies.

Start by researching the Explorer Ai talent for an extra boost on your research and then stick to the Engineering tree.

Timeline to track your progress:
SOL 15 8 Research items unlocked, research increased to 1,500 per SOL
SOL 25 11 Research items unlocked, Dome being built
SOL 29 Landed colonists, started building research lab and mining export materials
SOL 35 13 Researched items unlocked, research at 1,500 per SOL
SOL 50 4 Research items left to unlock
SOL 56 3 Research items remain, each one is 20,000 Research increased to 2,000
SOL 65 2 Research items remain
SOL 74 1 Research item remains
SOL 85 Achievement popped

Scan sectors and anomalies as soon as you can for extra research
Build at least two research labs when you comfortably can
Place your research labs, export ship and rare materials extractor on high priority
Keep checking you research screen - Outsourcing will drop and you will need to top it up
I didn't bother but you can buy more explorers to increase your research
You can research (on the social tree) Mars crowdfunding and Earth - Mars initiative for more money and research but I stuck to the engineering tree instead

Finally when building the dome if you build a medium one and an Arcology tower you'll get

Surviving MarsIn the High TowerThe In the High Tower achievement in Surviving Mars worth 7 pointsBuild a Dome Spire

The tree randomises each new game so you may not be able to.

Once popped I recommend you keep playing and aim for
Surviving MarsThe BeanstalkThe The Beanstalk achievement in Surviving Mars worth 60 pointsBuild the Space Elevator
