What are the chances? A street performer in Boston was singing a John Legend song when she spotted him in the crowd. CNN's Jeanne Moos reports.
'Everyone needs to see it' (William Shatner) He didn't even say beam me up Scotty!! Will they bring this ride to Disney? Shatner was having a deep moment and Bezos didn't care. He was too excited about poppin' open the champagne 🙄 Never saw Bezo's first launch, so when I saw the base of the rocket come back down and land perfectly, I was getting 'Austin Powers' vibes 😆
Top Congrats William on his safe landing. With that kind of G force and speed flying up at his age is really incredible. I watched a lot of his star trek series when I was a kid too.. Simple outstanding I’m glad for Captain Kirk to have had the experience. I would point out it’s a penis shaped rocket. Did you watch the original Star Trek? Just saying.
How many tons of greenhouse gases have to be released into the atmosphere for the amusement of billionaires before governments put a stop to this? There is no valid reason for these guys to use this technology for their own personal amusement. UN shame in Ethiopia linked audio, Watch the link .

I don’t care as a fan .. Captain Kirk .. happy you got a chance.. WilliamShatner Extraordinary! I mean, what’s he got to lose? Worst case scenario is an epic way to go out. Beyond compare, actually. Go Shat go!🙀😹👽 I feel JeffBezos should send up an Amazon Worker from the front line. BlueOrigin 💡 Who cares? Thanks for wasting more money running this article.
Did the right one come back? Contrast that to the still very valid jubilation of everyone else. This is exactly why we need more artists/communicators as explorers. Made me tear up .... What does the word “after” mean in this headline People were complaining like this when we first went to the moon. One day it will be cheap enough for you and I to do it in our lifetime too. That's the idea.
William Shatner Makes History as Oldest Person in Space After Successful BlastoffShatner, who gave a thumbs up before exiting the capsule, has emerged from the capsule and he was visibly emotional. He was second to exit the capsule and you could see him say 'Wow' before hugging Bezos. Shatner later described his experience to Bezos before the Amazon honcho popped open a bottle of champagne. Shatner turned down the bubbly.
Yes the money could be used to feed whoever etc. But some people also need to do stuff like this. Forget about who went for the ride, and think about all the jobs that were created to get them there. All the families over the last couple years in blue origin. Bezos killed captain kirk Yes but did he meet any Vulcans?
Did he have any ‘Trouble with Tribbles’? Who gives a fuck?!?! Bored billionaires who waste their money doing shit for fun rather than helping further and better human kind IS NOT NEWS. Maybe report on what kind of things the money bezos has spent on his dick ship could have fixed for Americans! The environment certainly appreciates the self-indulgences of the privileged on the flying phallis
Wgas wgaf I couldn’t care less about this. But here I am commenting on something I care so little about so I guess I’m bored. Go Sox!! Sad sad sad. A lot of people could have been helped with $55 million. The Selfish and self absorbed wealthy have never been so in humane

You can’t start a headline like that. I thought he’d died. 👎👎👎 🤔 If you have money to throw away, please consider throwing it at something more worth while instead of sending some fartknocker into outer space... The common people will scrounge while the rich go out and play.

Lol 😁 How many days are you going to shove this story down our throats? I really do not care!!! Who cares... 4 minutes up then a 10 minute hug photo op with Bezos That’s not Outer Space That’s movie set worthy
Me, reading all the virtuous people responding to this news like they're attending a protest rally: “I have never understood why it is 'greed' to want to keep the money you have earned but not greed to want to take somebody else's money.” - Thomas Sowell Blah blah blah! I’m sure there wasn’t an MIT student who wouldn’t have gotten way more out of this..? neiltyson ?

Welcome aboard Captain Kirk, Sir. I wish the whole crew could have gone together. A good project towards CO2 consumption & expenditure goals…🤨 Great lead in… Why? kateesackhoff - You’re on deck 🚀 Star Trek or Star Wars? At least our team has actually been to space. Way to go Mr. Shatner! 👩🚀🖖🚀 Nothing but another huge publicity stunt
WE are ALL already in SPACE ...! Engage. Wow!! And there's STILL millions of people here dealing with starvation and homelessness. No offense, but Besos mistreating his employees just to fly in a big white penis? Priceless! But definitely congrats to William Shatner for finally going where he's never gone before
Captain Kirk went up 62 miles, then came back down 10 minutes later. 'This was nothing compared to when I used to scoot around all across the galaxy at warp speed, but it was good to know space is still up there. I don't think my trip impressed many Klingons or Romulans, though.'
