'There Need to Be Things That Inspire'

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk | AP

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk debuted a new mini-documentary/music video Saturday night at South by Southwest Interactive in Austin, showcasing last month's successful launch of the Falcon Heavy rocket.

The video shows, with elegant editing, the Florida crowds lined up to witness the launch, the preparation of the three massive engines and the rocket's fiery ascent. With the ability to lift into orbit almost 64 metric tons (141,000 lb)-a mass greater than a 737 jetliner loaded with passengers, crew, luggage and fuel-Falcon Heavy can lift more than twice the payload of the next closest operational vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy, at one-third the cost.

Falcon Heavy is able to send object on the Earth orbit at prices by 66% lower than its #1 competitor, the Delta IV Heavy.

The Falcon Heavy will ultimately be used to launch extremely heavy satellites into orbit and - assuming that colonizing Mars ever becomes a reality - carry thousands of pounds of cargo. And while rocket launches in and of themselves are nothing new, what SpaceX did with the Falcon Heavy is truly something to marvel at. On the other hand, the main booster, which was set to land on a barge in the middle of the ocean, closely missed its landing site and plunged into the water.

Attendees of the the Westworld panel at SXSW got a surprise visit from Elon Musk.

The Musk's Tesla will fly in space at a maximum speed of 7 miles per second and will get at 250 miles away from the Earth.

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.
