To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, James T. Kirk flew to the edge of space. His bobblehead, that is. The students of Earth to Sky Calculus launched the Captain of the Enterprise to the stratosphere on July 24, 2016, onboard one of their cosmic ray balloons. He reached an altitude of 34.2 km before parachuting back to Earth and landing near Chidago Canyon north of Bishop, CA.
For $170.10 you can have this collector’s item along with a gift card showing him flying through the stratosphere and telling the story of his flight.
PLEASE NOTE: Kirk is a bit scuffed up--a result of his almost-crash landing in rocky Chidago Canyon. He has a scratch a few mm in length along his commanding chin, and a longer, fainter scratch across his chest. Space travel is ruff stuff!
