The head of SpaceX, Elon Musk, has released a new video of the launch of Falcon Heavy, which propelled a Tesla Roadster electric auto into space in early February.

The Falcon Heavy will ultimately be used to launch extremely heavy satellites into orbit and - assuming that colonizing Mars ever becomes a reality - carry thousands of pounds of cargo.

"Life can not just be about solving one sad problem after another". Particularly if there's another World War in our future, we need to make sure "there's enough of a seed of human civilization to bring human civilization back". That's why we did it.

"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.

The video was made by Jonathan "Jonah" Nolan, a British-American screenwriter best known for his work with his brother Christopher Nolan and as the creator of HBO's Westworld. He described the video as "a trailer", but "it's not a trailer for a movie". This is not a TV show trailer.

Dubbed as "Falcon Heavy and Starman", the videos show the preparation, success, and failures of the Falcon Heavy launch last month.

A few weeks removed from launch, Starman and his trusty Roadster are still orbiting in outer space. In fact, Falcon Heavy is 2 times more powerful than the previous most powerful rocket.

SpaceX's BFR rocket system is considered to be the successor to Falcon Heavy, and it's current design would use a total of 37 Raptor engines (31 on the booster rocket, and 6 on the spacecraft) that could possibly deliver twice the boost of a Saturn V rocket. Side blocks rockets returned to Earth shortly after launch, and Central crashed while landing. At the time of this writing, the Roadster is 5,962,089 miles away from Earth and 116,430,301 miles away from Mars.
