Talk on William Shatner’s Recent So-called “Space Journey”
(About 18 minutes in.)
I was counting seconds from 300 feet and it took 10 seconds for that pod thing to hit the ground with all 3 parachutes deployed which means it hit the ground at roughly 30 feet per secons. That comes out to 20.5 MPH. What was Shatner’s back doing at the point of impact? If he was heads up, the top of his spine would have punctured into his brainial cavity. If he was on his back, his internal organs would have flattened because unlike a car impact where the crumple zones slow the car down, this thing was still in one rigid piece and therefore have transferred the entire force of impact, exposing him to about 1 G in addition to the ambient gravity of 1 G totalling 2 Gs. For comparison, MY OWN FATHER is about as old as Shatner and when he fell down ONE stair he ended up hospitalised with an aneurysm, massive bruising, all that. He’s since made a full recovery BTW.
