'There Need to Be Things That Inspire'

'There Need to Be Things That Inspire'

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.

"We are building the first Mars, or interplanetary ship, and I think well [s.i.c.] be able to [do] short trips, flights by first half of next year", the SpaceX and Tesla founder said during a question-and-answer portion of an appearance at the South by Southwest festival, according to CNBC.

"The only way I know how to share [the Falcon Heavy launch] is a trailer", Nolan said.

The firm successfully launched its Falcon Heavy rocket in February in a dazzling technological feat, its 27 engines lifting a payload weighing tens of thousands of pounds into orbit before catapulting Musk's own Tesla Roadster toward the Red Planet to the tune of David Bowie's "Space Oddity". 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.

Nolan explained that they wanted the video to serve as a way of getting people excited and inspired by space exploration, the way he was as a kid. "Lots of things that are miserable and kind of get you down".

"There are a lot of bad things happening all over the world, all of the time", Musk said, referring to the launch of Falcon Heavy. "We tried to distill that essence down".

"This is not a movie trailer".

Life can not just be about solving one sad problem after another.

The rocket meant to make this voyage isn't the Falcon 9 or even the Falcon Heavy rocket, but a newer model that SpaceX is still putting together called the BFR - officially short for "Big Falcon Rocket", but since the name was partly inspired by Doom's BFG weapon, it's probably not unintentional if you first saw that acronym a different way.
