Shepard Blasts Into Space

This is very cool.

The daughter of the first US astronaut, Alan Shepard, has blasted into space – 60 years after her father’s flight.

Laura Shepard Churchley, 74, was one of six people to make the trip onboard a commercial spacecraft launched by Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin space company.

The passengers were briefly able to experience zero gravity on the sub-orbital flight.

    Cool. But what would have been really cool is if Nimoy,, Kelly, Nichols, and Doohan had been able to join Shatner on his flight.

    Man, If I had the keesh I’d be standing in the line.
