It's amazing.

William Shatner went into space today.

""Everybody in the world needs to do this," the Canadian actor told Mr Bezos after landing back on Earth. "It was unbelievable.

In tears, he added: "What you have given me is the most profound experience. I'm so filled with emotion about what just happened. I hope I never recover from this. I hope I can retain what I feel now. I don't want to lose it."

Well done Kirk.

Yeah but is it really space or simply just a massive waste of resources to travel 65k
VST 2.4 MIDI It's definitely on the list of todos
What MIDI tools are you itching to use

He went into space loads of times in the 70's. I've seen the documentaries.

Touche. Perhaps the title should be changed: Kirk went into Low-Earth Orbit.
I'm curious how well the toupee stayed on his head without all that gravitational force pushing it down.

Also: I did not know he was Canadian.

:lol:

I just find the whole thing a big disappointment "going to space" and it really just goes to prove that celebrities definitely have big wallets and little brains.

And all while us mear mortals are sat in our homes with low energy lights being told to turn electrical devices off at the wall to help save the planet from global warming :clap:

Personally I'm ok with above average temperatures and rising sea levels it will save me time getting to the beach and it will be warmer for longer, but there are other that could be adversely affected due to the over use of carbon emissions which is definitely being wasted on these so-called trips to "space" :thumbup:

He went for free. Bezos gave him a seat. Bezos is a Star Trek fan.

I was actually pretty moved by his reaction upon landing.
I’ve had only a few experiences that really effected me that way and while you could apply all sorts of reasoning to it in the end the experience itself is just beyond all that.
I think talking about kirks mission to low earth orbit in the context of say...global warming...it introduces a scaling problem that’s insurmountable.
On one level it’s true. It’s a waste of resources potentially. Piss in the ocean next to industrial energy wastage. On the other, what price or value can you put on a life changing experience.
I’ll turn a few appliances off for the guy. It was prob worth at least that.
