Remember, Ilon Mask announced a video of the crash of the central accelerator rocket Falcon Heavy? The promised footage went into a clip shot by Jonathan Nolan, the scriptwriter of Interstellar and the creator of the HBO series World of the Wild West.
The video was presented at the stand of the series "World of the Wild West" at the festival SXSW 2018 in Texas. It is assembled from the frames of the first flight Falcon Heavy, which successfully sent into space a red sports car Tesla Roadster with a "star man". In the video for the song Life on Mars? David Bowie shows the process of preparing for launch, landing two side accelerators and destroying the central unit, which fell into the ocean just a hundred meters from the landing platform.
"Life can not consist only of solving one sad problem after another," Ilon Mask writes in his tweet. - There must be things that inspire you; things that make you happy to wake up in the morning and feel like a part of humanity. That's why we did it. We did this for you. "
Jonathan Nolan noted that as a child he thought a lot about space travel. Over time, that passion and excitement disappeared somewhere, but being in the control center of the flight on the day of the launch of Falcon Heavy, he was amazed at the atmosphere there. In the video, they tried to convey this mood.
"This is not a movie trailer. This is not a TV show trailer. We hope that this trailer is part of a new chapter in the history of mankind, "Nolan explained.
