William “Captain Kirk” Shatner to fly into space

by Ninian Carter

October 12, 2021 – William Shatner, who played Captain Kirk in the cult classic Star Trek, is set to journey into space for real aboard Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin rocket. At 90, he is the oldest person ever to travel into space.

After nearly a lifetime playing Captain Kirk in the Star Trek television series and spin-off movies, actor William Shatner is set to “boldly go where no man has gone before”.

Shatner will be joined by three crew mates aboard the Blue Origin New Shepard NS-18 – Audrey Powers (Blue Origin’s vice president of missions and flight operations, and a former NASA flight controller), and Chris Boshuizen and Glen de Vries (two paying customers).

At 90 years old, he will become the oldest person to ever travel into space – fulfilling a lifelong ambition.

The rocket will blast off from West Texas on October 12, sending the crew on a 10-minute journey. It will reach altitude of 106km – just beyond the Kármán Line, the most widely recognised boundary of space.

interesting fact:

The Kármán line (or von Karman line) is an attempt to define a boundary between Earth’s atmosphere and outer space, and offers a specific definition. The FAI defines the Kármán line as space beginning 100 kilometres (54 nautical miles; 62 miles; 330,000 feet) above Earth’s mean sea level. The Kármán line was established in the 1960s.
The Kármán line is named after Theodore von Kármán (1881–1963), a Hungarian American engineer and physicist who was active in aeronautics and astronautics. In 1957, he was the first person to attempt to derive such an altitude limit.

A Kármán-vonal a világűr határa, amely 100 km-es magasságban húzódik. Ez az a magasság, ahol egy légijármű már nem tud a felhajtóerő segítségével repülni, és el kell érnie az első kozmikus sebességet (7,9 km/s) a fennmaradáshoz. Kármán Tódor számolta ki ezt a határt, mely az ő nevét viseli. A 100 km egy kerekített érték, amely csak kevéssé tér el az eredetileg számítottól. A mezopauza a Földi légkör határa a számítást igazolva a Kármán-vonal alatt helyezkedik el, nyáron kb. 85 km magasan, télen 100 km körül.

A következő feladatban 6 híres Star Trek idézetről fogtok olvasni, amiket akár a mindennapi beszélgetésekben is hallhattok. A feladatotok az, hogy párosítsátok az idézeteket a leírásaikkal.

6 famous Star Trek quotations:

A.I canna’ change the laws of physics.
B.Resistance is futile.
C.To boldly go where no man has gone before.
E.I’m a Doctor, not a magician!
F. Everybody – remember where we parked.

  1. The starship Enterprise (no matter which one) faced various challenges, threats, and other problems. But as the spirit of Star Trek always claimed, it was all about bravely going to places where danger could lurk. In other words – “1. …….” This quote can be used whenever a person is facing someone, they’re afraid of and want to lighten the situation. For example, if it’s their first time at the dentist or they’re doing a university exam for the first time ever, this quote fits the situation.
  2. One of McCoy’s common lines was – “2. …… ” Simply said, when somebody wanted him to do something he felt wasn’t equipped for, he protested very vehemently by using these exact words.
  3. Montgomery Scott was Enterprise’s chief engineer and he had the patience of a saint when it came to Captain Kirk’s demands. Most of the time, anyway. But sometimes, even Scotty knew that the Captain’s demand was simply impossible and he wasn’t afraid to let his superior officer know by saying: “3. ……” This is a good quote to use anytime somebody has overly high demands.
  4. First, Captain Kirk said it, and in the rebooted film series, Spock did. It can be used to express rage in any form, for any reason – and accompanied by the appropriate expression and tone of voice, it’s also downright hilarious. Plus, the quote is easy to remember – it goes as follows: “4. …….
  5. Captain Jean-Luc Picard was the first who had to deal with the dangerous enemies Borgs. They travel in a large cube, the Borg cube, and their plan is to assimilate every sensible To make sure no-one will protest against the change, Borg prefers to use the line: “5. ……. ” This quote has so many potential uses since it can serve against any person who protests against you, for whatever reason.
  6. In the fourth Star Trek movie, which is universally considered one of the best, the crew goes back in time to save whales. They end up in San Francisco in the 1980s and have to park their space ship in the Golden Gate Park. That is a pretty memorable place so it should be easy to remember where they parked the ship. Except for one small detail – the ship is invisible. Captain Kirk, therefore, reminds the crew: “6. …….
