I thought that I would jot down a few thoughts that might be OK for the pack.
additional raw resources,
new manufacturing methods,
additional component manufacture,
Air Cargo Planes,
Ability to create a passenger rocket and travel to a new planet and build on that planet,
The new planet might have new resources that facilitate onward travel,
Off world resource mining - resources brought to this planet from other planets
Cargo Rockets to/from other planets
Its going to be great to see what the Factorio team create !
