Who would have thought William Shatner would really go to Space?

Even after they announced it, I still found it a bit unbelievable.

And I was disappointed that they didn't have them all on camera for the flight.

Did anyone else watch?

And are we now in a 'Post'-Apocalypse world?

Yes I watched. Was excited and happy for the captain.

I liked his comments at the end, even though they are unrealistic; “everyone has to do this..”

Not I... but it certainly does get me closer to my "Chest rupturing alien from Aliens will kill William Shatner while he is enjoying a cup of coffee and a biscotti at his favorite bistro" pick.

Yeah, I feel silly saying I got a bit emotional listening to him. Star Trek was something that both my dad and I loved. My dad passed away a year ago. I was sad he wasn't here to see this. He really liked Captain Kirk.

I don't know why, but this just seems perfect.

Lol. My brother sent this to me today! It's funny. It would have been very apropos if it was Charlton Heston who went in that rocket though!

The Shat can chew scenery in the same overly dramatic manner though, and Heston is dead.

It is sort of bittersweet that of the original crew it seems that Shatner is likely the only one who will actually go into space while living as I realize that Scotty's ashes made it into space as well.

Many of us probably share that wonderful experience of watching Star Trek with their Dad/Family.

My Dad liked it so much that we watched it while we ate dinner. The family room and dining area were attached/joined so we could see the TV easily from the dinner table.

Sometimes it would be an outing in itself and we'd pull out the TV/Dinner Trays (remember those?) and go in the Family room to watch and eat.

I even used to try my hand at some Star Trek Impersonations...

(Kirk) "Scotty... I need more power"
(Scotty) "I'm giving you all she's got Captain "

(Kirk) "Bones ?"
(McCoy) "He's DEAD Jim !"

Pop passed on awhile back, but I know he would've loved knowing that his beloved Captain had finally made it into space.

.... and you get the idea.

As a Star Trek fan...I watched every second of it! How awesome to see him go! I wasn't sure he would survive but by golly he did!

He came out of the ship after landing and was really teary eyed and emotional about the experience. I had heard him recently on a talk show where he mentioned something about taking a small bag of things with him...I just wonder if the little bag contained items from spock, bones, uhura...etc.!! Surely he thought of all of them as he was up there for real.

My dad was also a Star Trek fan and the only time he would ever go to the movies was to see a new Star Trek Movie or something like Independence Day. He would have loved to see this also!

“Space.” What altitude did he get to?

Probably enough altitude to look over at his shoulder at the insignificant rock we call earth, and to look forward to the boundless universe that surrounds it.
I'm sure it's the cherry on top of his 90 years and I think it's awesome he was invited and went through with it.

Haven't seen it yet, we're there any on board cams? Was bill allowed to take his own footage? Just out of interest.

My personal opinion about the blue origin not having live stream from the capsule is this. Pictures or it didn't happen.
