"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," Elon Musk wrote.
As reported by The Verge, the video was created by Musk's friend, director Jonathan Nolan.
"This is not a movie trailer. This is not a TV show trailer. We hope that it will be a trailer for a part of the next chapter of human history," Nolan said, first showing the audience his video at the annual South by Southwest festival on Saturday.
The video includes new footage, which the public has not yet seen. They show the preparation for launch, the reaction and glee of the audience, the launch of the rocket into space and the video footage of a Tesla Roadster flying in space with a dummy behind the wheel. In addition, the video shows the collapse of the central accelerator of the first stage of the Falcon Heavy booster rocket, which could not land on the floating platform, and fell into the Atlantic Ocean at a speed of more than 480 kilometers per hour.
