Quote:Star Trek actor William Shatner and three others will be rocketed into space today on a Jeff Bezos rocket.
Quote:Blue Origin’s New Shepard rocket will lift off from Texas on Wednesday morning, bringing Star Trek actor William Shatner and three others into space.
This will be the second launch Blue Origin, a company created by Jeff Bezos will undertake and the weather is expected to be in the rocket’s favor. The original launch was scheduled for Tuesday but was delayed one day due to forecasted winds.
Blue Origin’s launch from Houston will be live-streamed on YouTube on PBS News Hour’s channel and the launch is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. local time, which is 10 a.m. ET. It can also be streamed on Space.com and Blue Origin’s YouTube channel. Blue Origin encouraged those interested in the launch to follow its Twitter page for updates on the launch.
Here is the live feed of today’s event:

For the first time ever or just since the last time he’s been on the movie set of the Star Trek?   Chuckle

Or what distraction do the demoncrats need?

I hope Mr. Shatner and his crewmates enjoy this trip.

My only gripe is the misleading connotations of these journeys. Blue Origin sends nobody to "space".
Space begins 5 times further out than this orbital mission is going.
Describing these flights as "suborbital space" missions is oxymoronic hype.

Man @Treebeard, I thought I was cynical.  You take all the excitement out of this mission, however, you are correct.  They got far enough up to experience weightlessness anyhow.

They did not even orbit the Earth, just a giant phallus ejaculating into near space. Yeah3

All things considered, I would have enjoyed the flight and the sights from above.

Baby steps.
But I do love me some star trek and it is fitting Captain Kirk be one of the first to go higher than most of us.
Being science minded...yeah that wasn't a "space" flight for me. Hey, it's on the way, so I'll take it.
Glad everyone is ok.

No....he cried.  He had his "spontaneous response " well scripted before he went

I'm so jaded.  Facepalm

That's what I said the first time I went skydiving.

I was thinking it would be the ultimate tickle sensation...like the one you get when you're in a small plane and you drop...for just a second you get that weightlessness or when you're driving and there's a dip in the road...like the road to the sand dunes in Arizona.
I love that feeling!

But it was not to be...just a lot of air in your face and then a slow float back down to earth.

I would like to see the earth from that high up though...the quiet stillness, the glow of the earth bouncing off the darkness of space, the smell of ozone. That would be a neat thing.

I'm glad the Captain got to go and that he came back safely.
