his space trip immortalized by Amazon

Amazon’s streaming platform will produce a documentary on William Shatner’s space flight, which will air in a few days.

On October 13, William Shatner achieved an incredible feat. The actor, best known for his role as Captain Kirk in Star Trek, was sent into space by Blue Origin, the same company that flew Jeff Bezos days before. He had thus become the oldest man to have traveled in space, at the height of his 90 years. An unforgettable moment, which at least deserves to be immortalized as it should be.

Fortunately, Amazon had it all figured out. In a few days, the firm will present its new documentary to the world, centered around William Shatner’s space travel. This one is soberly titled ” Shatner in Space ”And will be broadcast on the Prime Video platform from December 15th. The news was announced by the actor himself during a virtual panel during the Comic Con Experience. This took place this weekend. He declares :

My stay in space was the most profound experience I could have had. This special documentary on my journey gives a spectacular take on that experience, and I hope it will inspire the world to understand that we must go to space to save Earth.

The documentary will focus on the entire process that led the actor to travel to space, as well as how it unfolded and the moments after the operation. As a reminder, William Shatner had reached the limit of space with three other travelers that are Audrey Powers, the vice president of Blue Origin responsible for missions and flights, Chris Boshuizen, the co-founder of Planet Labs, and Glen de Vries , the co-founder of Medidata.

For France, it is not for now

Unfortunately, it seems that Amazon does not plan to share this experience with us in our green lands. Indeed, the documentary will be broadcast in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom … for the moment. In France, we can count on a broadcast from 2022 if Amazon respects the program it has set.

In addition, Blue Origin is planning a new mission before the documentary is released, which should take place on December 9. Baptized NS-19, it will include among its passengers the daughter of Alan Shepard, the first American sent into space (just that) and the former professional American football player, Michael Strahan. With them, four people who bought their seats will accompany them.
