Elon Musk made a surprise appearance at HBO‘s Westworld panel at SXSW, joining friend and Westworld creator Jonathan Nolan to release an epic trailer of the SpaceX Heavy Falcon rocket launch that carried Spaceman into orbit.
"The highlight reel was created by Nolan, who spoke about the importance of inspiration and the excitement he felt as a child when watching Super 8 footage of Saturn rocket launches — a collective enthusiasm that has seemingly dwindled in recent times. “And so I was having a drink last year with a friend, and we were talking about how do you inspire people? How do you get people to talk again, how can you drive the conversation?” said Nolan. The friend turned out to be Musk and the solution they came up with was a red sports car and David Bowie‘s track “Starman"" via Hypebeast
