NASA: to boldly go…
The crew of space shuttle Discovery–on their final mission back to earth from the International Space Station–got a very special wake-up call today from William Shatner, who played Captain James T. Kirk on the original Star Trek television series.* A very apt modification from the original:
Space, the final frontier. These have been the voyages of the space shuttle Discovery. Her 30-year mission: to seek out new science, to build new outposts, to bring nations together on the final frontier, to boldly go–and do–what no spacecraft has done before.
I also love the comment suggesting, “I hope you get Sigourney Weaver to do a scary, Alien one on April 1st.” … or maybe that might not turn out so well.
* I know, DUH. But some people out there still only know him as Denny Crane or… T.J. Hooker.
