10_13_21 Shatner To Space and Gruden Fallout Continues

William Shatner has boldly gone where no 90-year-old has ever gone before. 

The famed “Star Trek” actor and three other private crewmembers launched into space today (Oct. 13) on a Blue Origin New Shepard rocket, marking the second time that Blue Origin has successfully launched a crewed suborbital mission on its vehicle for space tourism. Dubbed NS-18, it was the 18th flight of a New Shepard vehicle overall. 

“That was unlike anything they described,” Shatner was heard saying via a radio link as the capsule parachuted back to Earth.
