How to watch Elon Musk's Q&A at SXSW

Elon Musk says Mars could be a refuge in the event of a third world war on Earth. AFP

Assuming the Tesla that Musk launched into space aboard the Falcon Heavy doesn't actually reach the Red Planet, this rocket would be one of the first commercial objects (i.e. not sent by NASA or other government space agencies) to reach Mars.

"Life can not just be about solving one sad problem after another. There needs to be things that inspire you, that make you glad to wake up in the morning and be part of humanity", Musk addressed the Austin, Texas crowd.

"Why is the Falcon Heavy and Starman (the dummy sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle - ed.)? We did for you", Elon Musk wrote.

The recent SpaceX video has been made by Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan, co-producers for the HBO original Westworld series, and has been shown at the SWSW 2018 event. This is not a TV show trailer.

When Falcon Heavy lifted off, it became the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two. They depicted the preparations for the launch, reaction and jubilation of the audience, the launch of a rocket into space and video footage of flying in space auto the Tesla Roadster with a dummy behind the wheel.

Nolan, who was at ground control with Musk during the SpaceX launch, wanted to express how he felt "the only way he knew how", and ended the panel with three-minutes of footage that was captured that day. Side blocks rockets returned to Earth shortly after launch, and Central crashed while landing.

Elon Musk, the founder and CEO of SpaceX, says the company is planning to launch a spacecraft to Mars and return it to Earth as soon as early 2019.
