I remember reading "The Third Industrial Revolution" [0] in my childhood, which was a paean to all the different industrial processes that would be possible in space. One that I remember was alloys of metals with vastly different weights (lithium and lead, for example). In gravity it's hard to mix them perfectly because the heavier metal sinks, but that is not an issue in space.

Would be fun to read it again and see what predictions, if any, came true.
