36 Atalante is a large, dark Main Belt asteroid. It was discovered by H. Goldschmidt on October 5, 1855 and named after the Greek mythological heroine Atalanta (of which "Atalante" is the German form).

Great Justice funded the construction of a base here early in the Boskone War, originally to support the activities of the Magnificent Midnight and The Roughriders. After the war, the base was awarded to the Roughriders (who already owned the asteroid), and still supports their fleet.
