How to No Man's Sky

- Where to find Atlas Pass v2, v3 recipes
Use bypass chips at beacons and search for Operation Centers. Get enough of them right and you will have them

- What to do with Atlas Stones
Save 10 of them and turn them in to the Atlas station during the Atlas path mission to create a new star

- Move a little faster on the ground
Hit the melee button while sprinting (r3, r1) then use your jetpack (x) to do a "long jump"

- Upgrade your ship for cheap
two options here:
1) save up then delete all the upgrades from your current ship when you're ready to go ship shopping. The ships that show up are relative to your current ship's value

2) find a distress beacon on the planet to lead you to a damaged ship you can salvage. The damaged ship will sometimes have more slots and it's MUCH cheaper to repair the launcher than buy a new ship outright
