I can't believe the crew has to walk up 4 flights of stairs to board the capsule!!! Seems pretty low-tech. Why isn't there an elevator?

Does Elon have an elevator?
He does. It’s powered by coal.
He’s making Kirk walk because Elon is Khan’s grandson.
This is his revenge.
Served cold.
It is very cold in space.
But the weather man said it would be chilly on the launchpad too, so Elon was like Eh… close enough.

Shatner’s conversation with Bezos was pretty cool, though Bezos did not care and was trying to get away.

Shatner: Poetic, inciteful, interesting, moved....

Other people at the landing site: Wooo! Wooooooo! Wooo.

Yeah, Bezos interrupted Shatner and walked away to spray champagne. I thought Shatner was the main reason for all the video ops. And whoever was shooting the video of Shatner is no cinematographer. Just a guy with a camcorder, paying no attention to light and shadow.

Why didn't they have cameras in the capsule?
I wanted to see Shatner weightless.
And, if by some small miracle he threw up all over the place....
That would have been a meme for the ages...
