Elon Musk wants to preserve humanity in space

Daily Texan Staff

The head of the American company SpaceX Elon Musk has published on Twitter a new video of the launch of the launch of the Falcon Heavy with the Tesla Roadster, which was held in early February.

Elon Musk may be an innovator and icon for several South by Southwest festival attendees, but the engineer and tech magnate made it clear who he turns to for inspiration - and it's one of the best in the rap game.

During his stage time, he spoke about the excitement of space travel, sending a Tesla into a space and what a time it is to be alive.

While Musk was quick to say he's not exactly making a prediction, he does feel we need to get going before World War III rolls around.

"There are a lot of awful things happening all over the world, all of the time", Musk said.

"Cena later demands and gets his " WrestleMania moment" against Taker for costing him the championship and we still get AJ vs. If anyone is going to take the title from Styles, it's going to be Cena, who still doesn't have a clear WrestleMania opponent.

"Life can not just be about solving one sad problem after another". "How do you get people to talk again, how can you drive the conversation?"

"But life can not just be about solving one miserable thing after another", he added. "That's why we did this". You know, the rocket that carried a red Tesla with a dummy in an astronaut suit.

Musk said he felt really excited by Tsiolkovsky's ideas around needing to be out there among the stars, and to expand the scope and scale of human consciousness. (Read into that what you will, he said.) Musk wants to see the rocket take short flights up and down in the first half of next year.

"AI scares the hell out of me", he said, telling Nolan that while he's not typically a fan of regulation, he feels AI is more risky than nuclear weapons and it's not like we let just anyone build nukes. The entrepreneur has posted the video (he calls it Falcon Heavy and Starman) in two parts on Instagram.

This won't be the last you'll hear from Musk at SxSW.
