Rod joins Leo to talk about William Shatner's upcoming flight into space, which, at age 90, will cement his status as the oldest living man to go into space as part of the next Blue Origin New Shepard space flight. It'll be part of a documentary from Amazon, and it's sure to be a grand adventure for Captain Kirk.
Star Trek icon William Shatner, aged 90, is poised to become the oldest man to go into space, as he is slated to join the crew of Jeff Bezos' next New Shepard space flight. Here's hoping it actually crosses the Von Karman line this time.
Rod joins Leo to talk about Jeff Bezos' flight on July 20th in Blue Origin's New Shepard spacecraft, which will duplicate Alan Shepard's suborbital flight in 1961. He's also taking Wally Funk, who was tested in the 60s by the Lovelace Clinic with the same tests as the original Mercury astronauts. Rod will be speaking at Spacefest this year about how movies have predicted our spacefaring future.
