Elon Musk

If you have an idea for Elon Musk, you can submit it to [email protected] with the subject “Lifeboat Foundation Elon Musk”.
We have had a proposal by a board member that we submitted to SpaceX get accepted for discussion with SpaceX which led to NDAs being signed by SpaceX, Lifeboat Foundation, and the board member. (We have direct communications with SpaceX’s President.)
Our President has also exchanged a few messages with Elon.
If the idea is accepted by Elon or any of his companies, we will make sure they know it was your idea.
