Orlando Sentinel’s Central Florida 100: SHATNER’S STAR TREK

, , Leave a comment

It may not be accurate that William Shatner is going where no man has gone before, but we can say with certainty that he is going where no 90-year-old has. Captain Kirk, the cultural icon from Star Trek fame, will be launched to the edge of space this Tuesday aboard the New Shepard, the rocket built by Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin. It’s no secret that space travel has begun in earnest, and while Captain Kirk’s rocket will launch from a pad in West Texas, these are still exciting times for Central Florida’s economy sporting facilities equipped to handle space tourism as it explodes into common travel over the next decade.
