‘Westworld’ Creator Makes A Trailer For Elon Musk’s ‘Falcon Heavy’ Rocket Launch
By Yoon Sann Wong, 12 Mar 2018
The crowd at HBO’s Westworld panel, held over the weekend at SXSW in Austin, was greeted by an unlikely guest: Elon Musk.
The entrepreneur joined Westworld creator Jonathan Nolan to unveil a special collaborative project that the two have been quietly working on—a trailer for SpaceX’s recent ‘Falcon Heavy’ rocket launch, from which Musk previously shared a final photo of ‘Starman’ in a Tesla as it flew away from Earth.
The poignant video that covers the rocket’s production and launch is set to none other than David Bowie’s Starman.
In his tweet, Musk answers the question regarding his ambitious projects such as ‘Falcon Heavy’ with the words, “Life cannot just be about solving one miserable 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.”
Nolan adds that this is not a trailer for a movie or a television show, but rather the trailer for a part of the subsequent chapter in the human story.

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
