Elon Musk crashes SXSW panel to talk about space travel”

The Falcon Heavy is part of Musk's road map towards human colonization of Mars.

"Earth is the cradle of humanity, but you can not stay in the cradle forever", Musk said, quoting Konstantin Eduardovich Tsiolkovsky, one of the first prominent Russian rocket scientists.

Dubbed as "Falcon Heavy and Starman", the videos show the preparation, success, and failures of the Falcon Heavy launch last month. "Lots of things that are miserable and kind of get you down".

Nolan, in comments reported by The Verge, said he produced the video in part to inspire the public in the way he was inspired by Saturn rocket launches. Following liftoff, the two side boosters separated from the center core and returned to landing site for future reuse. It also includes numerous new shots of the prep for the launch, including Musk's infamous red Tesla Roadster being attached. 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. "It felt extraordinary, thinking about all the people that had contributed to putting this together, and the spirit of it. We tried to distill that essence down".

Musk acknowledged that "people have told me that my timelines historically have been optimistic, so I'm trying to recalibrate to some degree here". He described the video as "a trailer", but "it's not a trailer for a movie". It's not a trailer for a TV show.

"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.
