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.

As reported by The Verge, the video was created by Musk's friend, director Jonathan Nolan.

Toward that end, Musk is shifting his focus to developing the BFR, which could stand for "Big Falcon Rocket" or "Big F**king Rocket".

Space X founder Elon Musk has declared his Mars space ship will start test flights next year.

"A self-sustaining base. ideally on Mars.it's more likely the Mars base will survive than a Moon base".

Predicting a similar fate for self-driving vehicles, Musk expects by the end of next year, self-driving will encompass essentially all modes of driving and be at least 100-200 percent safer than a human driver. And while it won't be capable of getting anyone to Mars just yet, he said it would be able to do short up and down flights and have a liftoff thrust twice that of a Saturn 5, the NASA rocket at the heart of the Apollo program. "People have told me that my timelines historically have been optimistic", he said to great laughter from the audience.

There's also the topic of artificial intelligence. "We have to figure out some way to ensure that the advent of digital superintelligence is one which is symbiotic with humanity. They certainly don't think it's possible, but if we do they'll up their game".

"I think it's unlikely that we'll never have a world war again", he said. He's also thinking about the night life on Mars.

"For the early people that go to Mars, it will be far more risky", he said. But he really raised eyebrows when asked the source of his inspiration.
