  • William Shatner Goes to Space on Blue Origin Rocket

    7:16

    Oct.13 -- Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin launched its second crewed flight into suborbital space with a manifest including 90-year-old “Star Trek” actor William Shatner, who became the oldest person to blast off the planet. The rocket lifted off from a complex in Van Horn, Texas. Shatner was on board with three other people.

    2:10:16

    Star Trek’s Captain Kirk blasted off into space Wednesday morning aboard Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin spacecraft — boldly going where no other sci-fi actors have gone.

    Jeff Bezos‘ space travel company, Blue Origin, carried Canadian actor William Shatner, who at the age of 90, became the oldest person in space. He was joined by three others — two of them paying customers — aboard a Blue Origin capsule. It was the company’s second launch with a crew.

    Bezos was on the debut flight in July, along with his brother and the youngest and oldest people to ever fly in space. Shatner will break that upper threshold by six years.

    “I’ve heard about space for a long time now. I’m taking the opportunity to see it for myself. What a miracle,” Shatner said in a statement.

    Also flying with Shatner: a former NASA engineer who founded a nanosatellite company; the co-founder of a software company specializing in clinical research; and a Blue Origin employee.

    The up-and-down space hop will last 10 minutes and reach no higher than about 66 miles (106 kilometers).

  • William Shatner hits the edge of space, but why cant space stocks follow

    3:51

    Blue Origin manages to get Star Trek actor William Shatner to the edge of space and back, so why are space stocks stuck on the launch pad. With CNBC's Melissa Lee and the Fast Money traders, Guy Adami, Steve Grasso, Bonawyn Eison and Pete Najarian. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO:

    Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin launched its New Shepard rocket for the fifth time this year on Wednesday, and with Canadian actor William Shatner joining the company’s second crewed spaceflight to date.

    Called NS-18, this New Shepard mission carried a crew of four: Shatner, Blue Origin VP of mission and flight operations Audrey Powers, Planet Labs co-founder Chris Boshuizen and Medidata co-founder Glen de Vries.

    Liftoff occurred at about 10:50 a.m. ET.

    Shatner, who famously played Capt. Kirk in the original “Star Trek” television series, is now the oldest person to fly into space, at 90. The record was previously held by aerospace pioneer Wally Funk, who at 82 flew on Blue Origin’s first crewed launch in July.

    The rocket launched from Blue Origin’s private facility in West Texas, reaching above 100 kilometers (or more than 340,000 feet altitude) before returning to Earth safely a few minutes later. From start to finish, the launch lasted about 11 minutes. The crew experienced about three minutes of weightlessness.

    New Shepard’s capsule accelerated to more than three times the speed of sound to pass beyond the 80 kilometer boundary (about 50 miles) the U.S. uses to mark the edge of space. The capsule is flown autonomously, with no human pilot, and returned under a set of parachutes to land in the Texas desert.

    The New Shepard rocket booster is also reusable, and landed on a concrete pad near the launch site. NS-18 was the fourth launch and landing for this booster.

    The company also flies New Shepard on cargo missions, such as the one in August, which carry research payloads in the capsule.

    Blue Origin founder Bezos flew on the company’s first crewed spaceflight in July on a mission that marked his company’s entrance into the sector of suborbital tourism, where it competes with Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic. Also in the private space tourism market is Elon Musk’s SpaceX. The company’s Crew Dragon capsule flies into orbit – many times the altitude of Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic’s spacecraft – and spends days in space, rather than minutes.

    While Bezos said that Blue Origin has sold nearly $100 million worth of tickets to future passengers, the company has not disclosed the price of a seat on New Shepard.

    The company’s latest crewed spaceflight comes as the Federal Aviation Administration reviews safety concerns raised by current and former employees in an essay published last month. Blue Origin CEO Bob Smith, in an email obtained by CNBC, responded to the safety allegations by saying the company’s New Shepard program “went through a methodical and pain-staking process to certify” the rocket to carry people, adding that “anyone that claims otherwise is uninformed and simply incorrect.”

    Blue Origin is suffering from escalating employee attrition, CNBC reported earlier this month. Departures include the New Shepard program’s senior vice president in August.

    Powers, whose role includes overseeing New Shepard program safety, was notably invited by Bezos and Blue Origin’s senior leadership as the fourth and final member of the NS-18 crew to be a representative for the company.
