I'm happy he was moved & saw it well.

We know there are some cynical folks that would have just said it was OK. Just to be a cool jerk about it. My opinion of him has risen.

BTW, Shatner has made the local news here a few times as he owns a farm here & likes to race horses. He's not a puss by a long shot . Several stories of him harness racing & crashing a few times. Few 86 year old fat men still sit a 30mph sulky. He did.

And then they all had to go through decontamination, these boys just jumped out and started shaking hands

Maybe, but I'm still a driver if I go to the store in my minivan even if I couldn't drive a Formula 1 without dying.

Yep, that thought occurred to me, too, when they just jumped out and started talking. Back in the day, they had to be decontaminated, in case there was some space poison or disease on them. I remember watching the Apollo missions on TV, too.

I'm glad he made it...he has lived a full relevant life and is still going. Good on him.

They should have sent a Klingon costume up with him to switch into for the recovery.
That would have been awesome.

Yep. IIRC, they were quarantined too, back then.

All well and good but they really need to work on the design of that thing - it looks like it may suffer from severe vibrations. At least they did away with the two round external fuel pods.

I have to say I've never seen a 90 year old who enjoys life as much as Shatner...

I had never given it a second thought... until I happened upon footage (provided by Amazon...) of the rocketship today.... and the landing of the rocket section. Quite possibly the most ridiculously absurd, and fakest looking damn thing I have ever seen. Are we supposed to believe this silly schidt? How in the hell was that rocket supposed to land like that, keeping itself upright and directing itself right to the landing pad? Asinine. And the thing was basically a giant space dick. Was this designed by Dr. Flexi Jerkoff? Bezos is literally telling all of us "fugg you".

I can see Spock's reaction to this if he were alive to see it: slightly cocks his head a bit, lifts an eyebrow, and utters one unemotional word..."fascinating".

Let's see... We sent astronauts to the moon 52 years ago. The space shuttle began development in about '74. It's now 2021. So this is the best America can do? It seems as though we've regressed.

Really, I found it only mildly more impressive than the Testers model rockets I shot off when I was a kid.

If anyone would like to become the neighbor of Mr. Bezos and would also like to have the front row threat to Blue Origin, why not buying this:
