The Daily News has an ironic article about William Shatner and going to space. It is a great idea to invite him to be on the flight, at the bottom of this post I’ll suggest a few more names of people they should invite, leave a comment if you can think of another.

As Captain Kirk he vowed to boldly go where no man had gone before, but away from the TV screen actor William Shatner is a little less adventurous – reportedly turning down a real-life space flight because he was too scared.

The Star Trek legend was offered a ticket by Richard Branson onboard Virgin Galactic’s first passenger flight in 2008. But Shatner, fearing he would be ill in space or the starship would crash, ironically revealed he’s terrified of space travel.

The 75-year-old actor said: “I’m interested in man’s march into the unknown but to vomit in space is not my idea of a good time. Neither is a fiery crash with the vomit hovering over me.”

Other celebrities I think they should invite on the flight:
George Lucas
Mark Hamill
Buzz Aldrin
Al Gore
Tim Allen
Lance Bass
Tom Cruise
