    A quick up-and-down doesn't cut it for spectators on the ground, but it's great for those who go up there and actually experience it. Looking outside and seeing the earth from that perspective is a mind-blowing experience like no other. There is even a name for it: the Overview effect.

      I watched it live from 3:00am here in kiwi land. The best (most impressive) part for me was the booster rocket returning to the landing pad.

      Also Bezos should have sent Nichelle Nichols up with Shatner. Capt Kirk and Lt Uhura would have been way cool.

        Ah, my retro dream-girl. I wonder if she'd be interested in a space trip?
        You there, on the motorbike! Sell me one of your melons!

          Apropos to nothing....my dad really disliked William Shatner for some odd reason. He(We) never watched Star Trek and no one in the family was interested in Star Trek. However my father always had a negative reaction to Shatner's name, picture, etc. He probably would have rooted for a small failure.

            There's nothing particularly likeable about the actor, but his character was awesome.

                The funny thing, as I mentioned, is that he never watched the show. I have no idea where it came from.

                  I think of Shatner more as TJ Hooker.

                  Star Trek? Pfffft, never really watched it.

                    You should be banned from this thread because you tried to kill James Tiberius.

                      Even though I did watch TJ Hooker and didn't watch Star Trek, I still consider Shatner as Captain Kirk more than Sgt. Hooker. Maybe it was the distraction of Heather Locklear. I don't know.

                        That was on when I was 15-18, the peak of my sci-fi fandom, so I never really had a chance to NOT be engrossed by it, as hokey as it was, and it was!

                            To show you my lack of knowledge of the show, I had to look this one up. I don't recall seeing the character before.

                              I barely remember TJ Hooker and was never a Trekie. I only associate Shatner with Kaley Cuoco commercials.

                                On the first season.
