The launch will probably be shown on most Faux-Neus channels. Sci-Channel has full coverage going if you are interest and have access to it.

Blue seems to be the Color of the Day.
That would have been a great gimmick though.
MY BAD. They went to a HOLD at the 45 min. mark. 25 minutes into the hold at this time.

Another HOLD at T- 15 min. mark.
One thing a bout this "Privateers": They are not free with information about what is going on.

Maybe the Vulcans will be passing the planet and take notice this time around?

Didn't some of Nemoy's ashes go to space in a rocket ?

All "countdowns" have built in holds. The space shuttle launches especially due to 8 emergency landing sites that all had to be at "go"..........from Florida around the world back to Edwards AFB

He's a bloated over-payed actor. He pretended to fly in a spaceship, and now he is paying to fly in a real rocket. Why does this matter?

I have it on good authority that these holds can be attributed to Bill waiting on the McD breakfast order delivery.

I loved him the best in Boston Legal!
I didn't watch Boston Legal much, but the episode I remember is when Denny pleaded with a robber about 'how would it look with Obama as POTUS and his getting robbed. Then he handed over his watch and wallet to the gun-toting robber and then he pulled out his pistol and said 'Gun control' and shot the dude in the legs...twice.

It was a very entertaining series to watch. Spader and Shatner were great together!

Spader is really good in The Black List too. We don't watch many shows on the TV but that one is a good cliff hanger.

BEZOS sent him "GRATUS" a Great PR Move.

Hopefully you feel the same when it is revealed that Red was a woman.

Shattner in low earth orbit. How exciting! Lets hope he takes a lot of pictures with his fish eye lens.

The flight didn't even go into orbit, or space for that matter. Why are they making a big deal of a flight that couldn't do what John Glenn did in 1962?

I'm quite certain that the Vulcans were not impressed.

We have to stop this Jewish Hollywood worship. He’s nothing but a fat *** who pretended to be something.

BOOM. The truth hurts. I would take it a step further and include NASA/space/spaceX/private space bs worship in this, but then again you all think im nutso on that topic ;)

Ethnicity should not be a part of the equation, I was commenting because of his age and international recognition.

Nothing against Jewish people personally, I just notice certain patterns when it comes to Hollywood (and banking system.)

I would say a Jewish midwife is 1000 times more important than myself in a heartbeat. a midwife is way more important than a pretender who got his job based off his ethnicity.

I like Shatner and always have. I think he’s a modestly gifted actor, at best who just happens to get by mostly on personality and a really good sense of humor. I just like who he is personally, but this trip to space is a bit overblown. I don’t really think it’s important that an actor who Captained a pretend Starship on TV and in the movies is flying into space, or just close to space. Even still, Godspeed Billy.

As alluded above, this was good PR for Bezos, because most of the emphasis is on Shatner.

As do most people who know of him.

I saw him interviewed once, he was asked about his fans. His basic opinion of them was thanks, but you people really need to get a life.
I say that about all my fans, too.
