I'm just glad he has some folks with him so him. At that age, he might have trouble finding his way back without help.

Should have held out for Musk and Space X and gotten a few actual orbits in.....but all in all a great thing to see Capt Kirk going to the edge of space. I would take that ride in a heartbeat.

That was pretty amazing. I wonder if Amazon is going to do a promotional space flight for the 100th trillion customer or something?

Best part is watching the rocket come back down and land, looks like the capsule hits pretty hard though
There's a blast of compressed air that fires just before impact. Slows and softens the landing. But makes a yuuge dust cloud. Even without it, they're only going around 15 mph.

BTW...I love that they use imperial units. Pisses off the elitist pricks in the chat.

Kinda like passenger planes in the 30s and 40s. And we all know that went absolutely nowhere.
Better start applying for those outer space preference points. Hopefully Visa will soon offer a “space miles” rewards card as well.

PS don’t forget your vaccine passport.

I bet that guy that opened the hatch and stuck his head in said “Whew !!!!! Which one of you crapped ? “ And all of them raised their hand . Kirk probably had his turn signal on the whole time .

I do have to say that photoshopped pic looks more like harvey weinstein than it does william shatner.
