Build an Apple-branded space station
And back into space again. NASA budgeted $58.7 billion for the International Space Station from 1985 to 2015, which due to inflation and other factors, increased to $72.4 billion in 2010 dollars—a 23 percent increase over around 25 years.
All in all, however, the International Space Station cost around $150 billion, but that includes the 36 shuttle flights at $1.4 billion each, adding $50.4 billion to the final figure.
Apple doesn't have quite that much, but if Apple were to create its own version of the International Space Station, it probably wouldn't need as many flights to and from the station. It's fair to say that to build it, launch it up in separate parts, and get iAstronauts in there as well, the company could probably just stretch it.
