Elon Musk: Flights to Mars will start in 2019

Among an array of incredible visuals included in the new video are unseen perspectives of the launch, the side boosters' synchronized landings at LZ-1 and 2, and even the impressive demise of the rocket's center core after it missed the drone ship and slammed into the ocean surface. "I can tell you what I know currently is the case is that we are building the first ship, the first Mars interplanetary ship right now", Musk told a crowd during a surprise appearance at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, on Sunday.

Elon Musk released a lovely new short video about launching the Tesla Roadster driven by "Starman", a dummy equipped with a spacesuit, in space on the Falcon Heavy, SpaceX's latest rocket. But that doesn't mean he doesn't want to inspire people and get them talking.

Invited by Musk to attend the launch in person at SpaceX's mission control, Westworld producers Jonah Nolan and Lisa Joy gathered their own firsthand footage and drew from SpaceX's own internal recordings of the historic (and beguilingly absurd) launch.

A sequence of par stretched over next five holes gave him the lead as Wallace bogeyed the 16th and 17th holes. Shubhankar Sharma has shattered many a record since his first worldwide win in South Africa late past year .

"Life cannot just be about solving one miserable problem after another - that can't be the only thing".

To help generate that kind of excitement, the video uses music from David Bowie - though it's not "Starman", the song that SpaceX named the Roadster's spacesuited driver after.

"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.

The Cranberries To Complete Final Album With Dolores O'Riordan
A full inquest into the musician's death is set for 3 April , although authorities are not treating her death as suspicious. The group put the reissue project on hold after their singer, Dolores O'Riordan, died in January.

The images ranged from the awestruck crowds, to the rocket launching out of Earth's atmosphere, to the auto floating freely in space - all set to Bowie's eponymous "Life On Mars".

The Westworld co-creator clarified that the video was not a trailer for a forthcoming movie or TV show, but simply "we're hoping this is the trailer for one part of the next chapter of the human story".
