    Let's see ... they pyramid-shaped chunk of the Earth that I own has a mass of about 65 trillion pounds, but I can't think of anything I can do with abut 18% of it.

    If you mean money....well, I'd pay the tuition for every undergraduate and graduate student in the US who is currently majoring in science, engineering, or fine arts. And my daughters' student loans.

    Do the students have to be from the US, or enrolled in a US institution (or both) to qualify for this philanthropy?

    I'm thinking either. It would, of course, have to be a real institution of learning, not one of those for-profit ones.

    I'd call archaeology a science. I think I'd exclude management engineers and political science majors, though.

    If I had 12 trillion pounds, I'd get space infrastructure built, like orbiting fuel depots filled by lunar hydrogen and oxygen and I'd get a space elevator built on the moon and fund NAUTILUS-X.

    "Insufficient funds" is a major issue, although it is never the only issue.

    Our existing material technology is sufficient for building a space elevator on the moon, so at least no new materials technology will have to be developed.
    I'd settle for 2 out of 3 at least.
