I think we should prioritize like this: end absolute poverty, world hunger, and disease. Get a station on the Moon and Mars. Terraform some of our deserts (which I believe will lead us into learning how to control weather patterns), clean our oceans and end pollution, that old bag of potato chips. Explore our oceans and solar system while creating an evacuation process for Earth in the event of a planet-ending catastrophe, entailing a lot of space ships. I reckon we need to explore deep space, terraform some planets, and get some folks living there. We need to spread our concepts of peace, tolerance, and compassion, along with our knowledge and abilities to bring life to barren wastelands and planets.
And take with us a healthy thirst for the unknown.
