Elon Musk Releases New Video of "Starman" and Falcon Heavy Launch

The event is called "Elon Musk Answers Your Questions!".

Musk told his crowd at the annual conference that once the infrastructure is set on the red planet, "then really the explosion of entrepreneurial opportunity [will begin], because Mars will need everything from iron foundries to pizza joints".

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

Musk first announced his plans in September to send at least two cargo vehicles to Mars by 2022, with the goal of finding a source of water and ultimately establishing a human settlement.

It was certainly not how anyone would have possibly guessed that the panel on "Westworld" would have ended, but like the show itself, it was a panel filled with unexpected plot twists.

But Musk's not just thinking about doom and gloom. Instead, and perhaps even more appropriately, it's the sweeping "Life on Mars", from 1971's Hunky Dory.

Government to reveal policy paper on abortion if 8th amendment is repealed
Ministers have also been considering a policy paper outlining possible legislation if people vote to repeal the 8th Amendment. The Irish government has finalised the wording for the abortion referendum , which is set to be held in May.

Getting to that point hasn't been easy - he said early on that SpaceX nearly didn't survive. And while rocket launches in and of themselves are nothing new, what SpaceX did with the Falcon Heavy is truly something to marvel at. "If the fourth launch had failed, we would have been dead", he said.

"Earth is the cradle of humanity, but you can not stay in the cradle forever", Musk said, quoting Konstantin Eduardovich Tsiolkovsky, one of the first prominent Russian rocket scientists.

The rocket is now code named BFR, of which Musk said: "It's a bit of a Rorschach test in acronym form". Musk's been known to express concerns that AI could bring about the next World War and Sunday's Q&A was no different.

'It will be far more dangerous - difficult, dangerous, good chance you will die, ' he conceded.

It's important to make sure the dawn of AI is one that's symbiotic with humanity.
