 Smiley Well we have NEO's which could serve as a beginning. These Near Earth Objects, sail through our solar system and can come as close as 28 million miles to 18,000 miles from Earth.... There are at least 10,000 of these objects that range in size from only a few feet to 28 miles across. Laser mining is one of the ideas I have been kicking around. By cutting chunks off that are smaller at a continuous rate and returning them to a stationary place in outer space. We can create a logistically perfect system of refinement and material return. Not to mention we are improving the odds of human survival by mining NEO's to death so they don't impact the Earth.  Smiley Justification, if you will.

As for quantum Computing, it would be used to coordinate robotic mining and production of machines and materials.....
To begin with. As for the big picture, creating an Exodus space station is something that would happen as our understanding of material science deepens.
