Elon Musk and Jonathan Nolan’s Gorgeous ‘Trailer’ for SpaceX Draws Inspiration From David Bowie 890 500 C-Suite Network

Towards the end of an hour-long Westworld panel at SXSW, Elon Musk dropped by for a last-minute talk with Jonathan Nolan, the creator of HBO’s Westworld, to discuss the future of transportation and how far off private trips to Mars will be.

Musk and Nolan worked together to create a two-minute trailer from the recent launch of SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy, the flagship rocket of Musk’s private space-flight company SpaceX, and Musk posted the clips to Instagram. (Musk is notorious for not using a lot of marketing to promote his companies, so the video is essentially one of the first advertisements for SpaceX.)

Set to David Bowie’s song Life On Mars, the videos beautifully capture Falcon Heavy’s launch, including footage of the Tesla car on board floating with a dummy named Starman.
