For the benefit of mankind, I’d probably fire myself!

Otherwise, I’d focus some resources on an earth orbital station. Both for logistical support for refueling and other efforts with Starship, and for tourist travel. Market space travel to the billionaire set as more status than a 400 foot yacht. Maybe even offer time share space condos, staffed with space chefs, fine wines, and other luxuries. Get mega-rich idiots competing with one another for real estate in the space station, rather than custom 757 private jets and 20,000 ft^2 mansions. Oh, yeah and make mega profits from them to support space activities!

I would continue the work of Elon Musk, because I think that’s one of the most successful ways of accomplishment goals, such as colonisation on Mars.

If I was in charge of SpaceX I would put cameras and Doppler radar on all the new satellite’s being put into orbit, so we can help to Analyze weather patterns to help create better early warning system for hurricanes and tornadoes on Earth! This could help on Mars to find safe landing zones and help future colonist’s with a warning of upcoming storms, I would also put myself on the deer moon mission which is one of the most exciting missions in recent history! We are going back to the moon! #elon #dearmoon #yousuck2020 #spaceX #dearmooncrewcanidate

I would work directly with Elon Musk as he has been instrumental in the creation of Tesla ,SpaceX, and all of its moving parts, it would be a pleasure to work and learn from such an amazingly talented insightful person with an unrelenting drive to succeed in space and on Earth!

I have a few ideas that I would love to sit down with Elon and discuss I have an idea that could help with solar flares and radiation Prevention on the spacecraft and the new space suits

Help create a system to clean up space debris as to not to interfere with our satellites and future astronaut flights

I’m excited for the future moon colonization and steppingstone for mars missions this is an exciting time in our history that I’m proud to be part of! I would love the opportunity to be a SpaceX astronaut. Elon musk has really renewed the excitement we Had in our space program!

Elon musk are you going to design a moon tesla to be driven on the moon. I have some ideas it might be Useful to make this vehicle work a variety of different ways, Such as away to make it easier for astronauts to gather collection samples directly from the surface and place them in the trunk/storage containment without contamination

If put in charge I would add a workpod development that could be used on spacecraft or the ISS or future space stations. This would open up industries into space navigation for the computer guidence the pods would need. Along with designing a workpod that could be used with minimal training which would lead to mankind moving and working out in space...beccause manpower will be lacking eventually. This new division would also include robotic assistance when working in space. Which would have an ultimate goal of having an a robot assist drone also capable of helping an astronaut return to the station should say the tether ever break.
When one figures that soon Space-X will be able to send up 100+ tons of cargo a month, or more with a starship. This means that a new space station 3 times bigger than the current one could be built in a year or less. Something this size would require workpods, workdrones, drone assistants, etc. for the future of space exploration.

Do not have the $ for a television - SpaceX and I really don't know how long before I even lose internet and telephone. It would be nice to know more on Space and SpaceX.
 
If Elon put me in charge of SpaceX,
I would do first
thing:
1. Move the flight operations to the competent hard-working rocketeers at M.A.R.S., the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport along Virginia's Eastern Shore.
Many corporate, governmental and NGO's (Like the Chamber of Commerce) put their time, inspirations ans ideas together to make the facility so much more than a suborbital launch site.
Centrally located, launches of the Antares stack have been seen as far west Wash. D.C., Pennsylbania and north to New York and as far south as the Grand Bahamas.
Mr. Robt. Goddard's intuition was far seeing. But it has evolved into so much more than anyone could foresee. Truly a quality launch site.

As a fan of all things marketing, I'd create a campaign so that everyone would clamor to be on the first true vacation from this world & create a massive buzz - something that would get people away from griping about everything & put their energy into something greater than themselves.
To be honest,I actually believe that would be a really cool idea my friend LOL

Start planning early supply drops of some basic constructions and survival materials on both the moon and mars. Then work on developing some automated mining procedures for asteroids.

What would be the first thing I would do if Elon put me in charge of SpaceX? Well let's be honest here. The absolute first thing I would do is ask what will be my salary. After that, the universe is wide open.

Simply, continue work on colonizing the Moon... It is our stepping stone for most every endeavor we seek. This includes putting a telescope on the far side of the moon to help with BlackHole research. I would like the answer to this question: Have we seen a black hole from the side ever? Or tilted in a way to see behind it? if not, shouldn't we start focusing on that so we can determine what goes in doesn't come out (or the opposite). Thanks

I would take a picture of the Earth from space showing the entire globe in one unedited photograph.

Hello, My Name is Nikki TriPps Moore.
If I Were Given control of Spacex's resources, the first thing I would do, is use those Resources to look into Compiling all of our collected knowledge of Life (dna), and Technology (internet, AI-Tech), Art, History, and Culture.
Everything, like in an encyclopedia, but an Honest Accounting of Our Nature and Tendency as well, describing the Difficulties we have Overcome, as well as the seemingly insurmountable Adversity before Us, in our will to rectify our Mistakes.
We should do this just in case the worst befalls our Planet, as We See all around us in the Universe... or, hopefully, We just need a Calling Card for a New Neighbor.
...and...
For Posterity.
After I had this ''Chip of Life'', I would find out the existing polymers that we use to protect spacecraft that study the Sun and encase these Chips it in this.
I would look into ways of doing this process more efficiently and more durable, leading to advances in other related fields, perhaps most importantly, how we think.
The Absolute First thing i Would Hope to do though, is Say Thanks. Then I would probably paint Spacex's logo on my New Fence! Or at least pretty soon after i had that kinda swag :)
Thank you for the Opportunity to Share my Idea. Perhaps We can Elaborate on this Galactic Insurance that Assures there is a Chance, a good one, too (Especially if Quantum Equations are even remotely considered), that We are Not Forgotten.
We Can See to it, Rather Easily, that Everything is not Vaporized in Vein. No. We Know We Care!
just by doing this, We Insure we probably will never need them, but still, its a good idea to have insurance.
We Are Already on Mars, and we do not even have a chip like this here, let alone on any other celestial body.
Microchips are essentially dust. if all that is going to be left of Us is Dust, the Way We are Going, Lets make some "Smart" dust to stave this off, Hypothetically, Or, Next Time, (Imagine if this is what the Martian Blueberries were...) or for record, at least. Imagine how Our Archeologists would feel finding such a Grail!
It is not a huge Expense, Either. It is Only Collecting what We Have, to Protect Life as We Know It.
This is Where I would Start.
Why?
Its simple survival.
Some might say why should we care if we wipe ourselves out or the universe is better without us, but that is Absurd!.
The universe needs us, Or something like us.
It created Us. It Evolved Us to this point because Life can not second guess Solar Flares, Asteroids and Supernovas without some Intelligence to Figure it out and make some Contingencies so there Are Protections against Extinctions.
It is in almost every Culture, and I would Challenge it is the reason for Our Existence,
The bottom line is this, If We Care Enough to Simply Record for the Future what We Know of Life Right Now.
Insurance and Piece of Mind.
It isnt just about Us, We are Responsible for the Life around Us as well. all Life.
I would pursue other Space and Technology related endeavors as well, but this one is relatively cheap and easy.
Most of it is Existing Technology and Research just being compiled.
It makes sense to start here, that way We have a Mature, Responsible, Sure Footing as We Step Forward.
