SpaceX made a Falcon Heavy launch video with Westworld creators

The head of SpaceX, Elon Musk, has released a new video of the launch of Falcon Heavy, which propelled a Tesla Roadster electric vehicle into space in early February. It's a great little piece of myth-making - not surprising, considering it was put together by Jonathan Nolan, co-creator of HBO's visionary Westworld.

About a month ago, SpaceX made history when it launched the Falcon Heavy rocket into space.

"There are a lot of awful things happening all over the world, all of the time", Musk said, referring to the launch of Falcon Heavy. It also shows the deployment of the Heavy's payload, Musk's Tesla Roadster and its spacesuited mannequin driver, as they start their long journey through the solar system.

Anthony Davis posts triple-double but Pelicans fall to Jazz at home
Davis is now shooting 53.7 percent from the floor, 36.2 percent from three-point range and 82.7 percent from the free-throw line. Davis recorded a triple double with 25 points, 11 rebounds and 10 blocks in the Pelicans' 116-97 loss to the Jazz.

While Nolan noted that he often laments the fact that his grandparents' generation was the one to travel to the moon and sometimes it can seem like there have been few similar achievements since, Musk's recent SpaceX launch is something that fits into the "inspire" and "create conversation" model he holds in high regard. It covers the preparation and launch itself, along with new footage not seen by the public, such as the loss of the rocket's center booster. And naturally, there's no shortage of David Bowie for the soundtrack. "We tried to distill that essence down".

"Obviously, we've got a lot of problems on this planet, but one of the handsome things about space flight is that it's all of us working together". He described the video as "a trailer", but "it's not a trailer for a movie". They have to be things that "make you glad to wake up in the morning", and concepts like electric cars and space travel certainly qualify.
