Life can't just be a boring solution to one problem after another.

"Why is the Falcon Heavy and Starman (the dummy sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle - ed.)?"

The rocket meant to make this voyage isn't the Falcon 9 or even the Falcon Heavy rocket, but a newer model that SpaceX is still putting together called the BFR - officially short for "Big Falcon Rocket", but since the name was partly inspired by Doom's BFG weapon, it's probably not unintentional if you first saw that acronym a different way.

The Tesla and SpaceX CEO used the panel to not only inspire a new generation on space exploration, but also drop two epic highlight reels of the Falcon Heavy rocket launch that carried Starman riding in a Tesla Roadster into deep space. That's why we did it.

Trump holds rally in Pennsylvania for Republican candidate
Voters will head to the polls this Tuesday in a Western Pennsylvania House district President Trump carried by almost 20 points. Pennsylvania's 18th Congressional District has an estimated 17,000 steelworkers and nearly 90,000 voters from union households.

One of the main events regarding the first Falcon Heavy launch was the Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster "drove" through space's infinity by the renown Starman.

The rocket launch highlight videos were created by Westworld co-creator Jonah Nolan. This is not a trailer for a TV show.

"We are building the first ship, or interplanetary ship, right now", Musk said during a surprise Q&A session at South by Southwest. The video shows never-before seen details of the endeavor.

After the Heavy Falcon has been launched, its side propellers successfully landed by themselves after splitting from the core rocket. While the load of the first run - sports auto Tesla Roadster with a mannequin in a space suit behind the wheel - out on a hyperbolic orbit, and then, according to the idea of SpaceX, will journey into deep space in a heliocentric orbit: first will pass the orbit of Mars, and then on to the asteroid belt.
