Van Horn, Texas — Captain Kirk of Hollywood, 90-year-old William Shatner (William Shatner) flew into space on Wednesday in a fusion of science fiction and scientific reality, riding on Jeff Bezos’s A ship built by Blue Origin has reached the final frontier.
In a fully-automated space capsule, the Star Trek actor and his three passengers flew 66.5 mile above the West Texas desert. Then they safely parachuted back down to Earth. The flight lasted for more than 10 minutes.
After climbing out the cabin door, Shatner said to Bezos: “What I received from you is the deepest feeling.” This sentence was nearly as long as flying. “I hope that this incident will not be repeated. I want to feel the same way. It’s something I do not want to lose.”
He explained that it was a moving experience to go from a blue sky and a completely dark space. This is what I see.
Shatner was the oldest person to have ever been in space. He broke the previous record of a passenger who made a similar trip in July aboard the Bezos spacecraft. This created an 8-year-old record. It takes three minutes to lose weight and observe the curvature the earth.
Sci-fi fans will be delighted to have the chance to see Kirk, who is well-known for his courageous and principled Starship Enterprise Commander bravely going to places that American TV stars have never gone. The Internet has become crazy, and Trekkies quoted Kirk’s favorite lines, including: “Risk: Risk is our business. This is the essence of this starship.
Jackie Cortez, Blue Origin launch commentator, stated that “for all of us seeing Captain James Tiberio Kirk enter space is a moment which makes me nervous.” . She explained that she was attracted, along with many others, to space through shows like Star Trek.
NASA expressed its gratitude before the flight by writing on Twitter: “You are, always will be, and we are your friend.”
This flight is a hit with celebrities, baby boomers and space enthusiasts. It has been a huge success for Bezos’s space tourism business. From 1966 to 1969, when the United States was competing for the moon, Shatner starred in TV’s original “Star Trek” and continued to appear in a series of “Star Trek” movies.
Bezos is a huge fan of Star Trek. The Amazon founder made an appearance as an alien in a later film. Shatner was invited to ride for free.
As a help to Bezos, Shatner brought some “Star Trek” triple recorders and communicators into space—a bit like the iPhone of the future—made by Bezos when he was 9-year-old Trekkie. Bezos stated that they were saved by his mother for 48 years.
