released a Falcon Heavy launch trailer with Tesla on board
They hope that this is the “trailer of the next part in human history”.
During the performance on the panel of the series “World of the Wild West” at the SXSW festival in Texas, elon Musk and the creator of the show Jonathan Nolan presented the inspirational trailer launch Falcon Heavy. Some start-up frames were first shown to the general public. This was reported by the editor of The Verge, Brian Bishop, who is at the event.
Musk unexpectedly appeared at the festival at the end of the performance of the creators and actors of the series “World of the Wild West” from HBO. The creator of the show, Jonathan Nolan, asked him to speak to finish everything “on a note of optimism.” The head of SpaceX introduced the trailer, which he and Nolan made from the Falcon Heavy launch frames with Tesla Roadster.
According to the creator of the “World of the Wild West”, in his childhood he spent a lot of time talking about space and space flights. Nolan admitted that he grew up watching film recordings of Saturn rocket launches. However, he noted that recently he has ceased to feel the ardor and excitement inherent in space research.
Why Falcon Heavy & Starman?
Life cannot just be about solving one sad problem after another. There need to be things that inspire you, that make you glad to wake up in the morning and be part of humanity. That is why we did it. We did for you. https://t.co/5STO7q4wro

Once, last year, I drank with a friend and we talked about how to inspire people. For example, how to inspire people to talk again [about something] and how to get them to talk?
It turned out that this friend of Nolan was elon Musk, and their answer to this question was a red sports car and the song of David Bowie.
Nolan said that on the day of the launch Falcon Heavy was in the control center with elon Musk and felt “incredible spirit” then.
It was extraordinary, to think about all the people who came together to do this and the spirit of launching. And I felt something that I had not felt for a very long time. We tried to convey this feeling.
According to Nolan, the only way to convey feelings from such an event, which he knows, is to mount a trailer.
It’s not a movie trailer or a TV show. We hope that this is a trailer for one of the following parts of human history.
The short video shows the preparation, successes, and failures that preceded the launch of Falcon Heavy. Despite the fact that the rocket was launched on February 6, a new material was shown in the trailer from Nolan, which had not previously been shown to the public. For example, the unsuccessful landing of the central accelerator Falcon Heavy, which crashed against the ocean. In addition, the video showed that on one of the technical boards of the rocket was written “made by people on Earth.”
Immediately after the speech, Musk published a trailer on Twitter and told me why he started the car into space. He explained that there must be inspirational things in life.
On the night of February 7, SpaceX company elon Musk first launched theFalcon Heavy superheavy rocket with Tesla on board to the music of David Bowie. The launch was recognized as successful: the rocket brought the cargo into orbit, after which the two stages returned to Earth, and the third broke on the water.
