I just created a tag to go along with the and tags and then enthusiastically added it to eight questions.

On the last one I finally noticed that tag exists already, but currently both tags only exist on three questions.

already has a somewhat ambiguous Wiki excerpt:

Related to the fabrication of products in space, or the techniques and logistics of production of rockets in series.

It mentions manufacturing in space, but it also talks about "techniques and logistics of production of rockets" without reference to doing it in space. So it seems like a dual-use tag.

Most uses of do seem to relate to conventional manufacturing on Earth.

The way I propose to resolve this is to move all questions about manufacturing in space to and all questions about manufacturing on Earth of rockets or spaceflight-related items to .

I agree that tag is mostly used for Earth-based manufacturing, and it would be nice to have an individual tag specifically for space-based manufacturing.

Based on the the other answer I've done the following:

I've modified the tag definitions:

For :

Related to the fabrication of products to be used in spaceflight, or the techniques and logistics of production of spaceflight-related items.

For :

Related to the manufacturing of products in reduced gravity environments and/or during spaceflight, or the techniques and logistics thereof.


I've also made some tagging adjustments:

Switched to or added or removed

Switched to both tags

Left as
