PRESS RELEASE: ELON MUSK SPACEX LAUNCH REPLAYS IN THE ADVENTURES OF STARMAN
Elon Musk’s Falcon Heavy Launch inspires a millennial movement with Eli Burton’s comic series titled the Adventures of Starman, to be released on October 23, 2018 10:00 PST via adventuresofstarman.com/
A California native, Eli, was one of the billions of humans who was fascinated by the Falcon Heavy’s maiden voyage on February 6, 2018. The rocket launch carried a dummy payload: a cherry red Tesla roadster belonging to SpaceX founder Elon Musk, and in the driver’s seat, Starman – a human mannequin dressed in a space suit orbiting around the Earth with “Don’t Panic!” on his dashboard while David Bowie sang skeptically: “ Is there life on Mars?”.
It was the moment that space enthusiasts like Eli have been waiting for since the landing on the Moon. “ We all were brought up with the ideal that when we grew up we were going to live in a Futurama world – flying cars, space travel and humans becoming a multi-planetary species. Instead all we got were 140-characters, and a chance to buy upgraded smart phones, until Elon Musk came along,” says Eli. “ When I saw Starman orbiting around the Earth in Elon’s Tesla Roadster, I knew I had to do something to help push his vision forward,”, says Eli explaining his motivation behind The Adventures of Starman.
In addition to being an Elon Musk supporter, Eli is a fierce Tesla car advocate and he is the founder of the My Tesla Adventure Tesla Owners Club, a leading community and resource for current and prospective Tesla owners. My Tesla Adventure’s mission is to put on out-of-the-box events, bringing together Tesla Owners from across the Globe for fun adventures, to make unforgettable memories, and form lasting friendships. Eli created Tour de Tesla in the same fashion, an international 7 countries in 7 days road trip which he designed to connect American Teslaratis together with European Teslaratis. Eli also organizes road trips, drives, meet-ups, and drag strip races for Tesla owners in California.
To bring Starman to life, Eli partnered with Dash Martin and hired artists from both Marvel and DC.
The first episode of the Starman movement is dedicated to Elon Musk who is clearly the most important entrepreneur in today’s world and Eli’s inspiration to contribute to humanity in the first place.
“My vision for Starman is for him to become more than a moment. I see it as a millennial driven movement where people like me who are inspired by the current space revolution strive to do their best for human advancement toward space. I took an artistic approach because art has the capacity to inspire people, especially children like my daughter, to study hard and strive for STEM careers – this is a must if we are going to conquer the final frontier in our lifetime. I also hope that the Adventures of Starman will help drive public support for space exploration. Starman is the hero my generation needs to keep dreaming of a better future.”
What’s in store for Starman after the episode 1? Eli is going to continue honoring our contemporary leaders who are working towards a space faring civilization while shedding light on some of the realities and forces who are trying to stop our progress in creating a cleaner and safer planet.
It was once said of Musk: “It’s Elon’s world, and the rest of us just live in it.” Whether it is Elon’s world or Elon’s show – we are captivated and inspired by his vision and we want our own part in this new age show: not because it is the best-selling one, but because it is the best intentioned one.
