Screenshots below are from Brian May's new music video Brian May - New Horizons (Ultima Thule Mix) [Official Music Video] The beginning shows the launch of a rocket.
I can't tell for sure if this is just CGI or if it is actual footage, but I assume that it is 100% CGI.
Even so, does this rendering represent some actual use of copper on the outside of a launch vehicle? Is there some fact behind the fiction, or is this just weird and inexplicable?
(there are few other technical problems in the video as well)
