Default ...Lesson for Nasa! US Airmail and Aviation

You seem to be assuming facts not in evidence - the existence of a
space-based infrastructure that needs supplying from space. If you're
talking about selling to Earth-based customers, everything on this list
is cheaper to manufacture or acquire on Earth, or isn't something of
much use.

Cheap desalinization would provide a lot more water than getting water
from space.

There will be occassional hobbyish forays into space, but if you're
talking about -real- space economics, you have to provide a service or
product -for people on Earth- because -that's where all the customers
are-. In those areas where that is possible, such as information flow
and transfer, space investment was there. If space can provide
something else cheaper and better than you can get it on Earth, that
will attract investment too. What it might be I can't imagine, but
where you need to focus energy on is imagining it.

Water.

Lunar Lander.

Space Station Parts.

Space Station Supplies.

Mars Lander.

Space Station Astronauts.

Food.

Fuel.

Lunar Explorers.

The government currently has a budget for these items. Why not these thing
to start with?
