NASA's Parker Solar Probe Approaching the Sun

Last month NASA announced the opportunity for anyone fascinated with the universe to submit their name to be sent on a first-of-its-kind trip to the Sun. Now that opportunity is about to disappear.

Later this summer, NASA will send the Parker Solar Probe straight toward our star to study various things. On that very same probe, the names of all who wish to be a small part of the journey will be stored on a microchip. One of those names? None other than Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner, who also filmed a promo for the opportunity.

Continue below for much more info and to watch Shatner’s video.

SXSW attendees who sat in on a panel last Saturday afternoon featuring HBO’s Westworld showrunners and stars were surprised when showrunner Jonathan Nolan introduced SpaceX CEO (and generally real-life Tony Stark) Elon Musk onto the Austin Convention Center stage.

During the panel, Nolan had been previously lamenting at the fact that when he was a kid, he used to spend an “unhealthy amount of time” dreaming about spaceflight, but in recent years the enthusiasm for space travel had waned, so he was talking to “a friend” about how to inspire people to drive the conversation back into space exploration. The inspirational “shocking” idea they came up with was a red sportscar combined with the music of David Bowie. That “friend” was of course Elon Musk, who joined the panel on stage.
