Special Coverage: First Toupee in Space


 We will have special coverage of the historic first ever flight of a toupee into space. Stay tuned, and for now: Godspeed! 


UPDATE: They made it! The capsule detached (from the lower stages), and the toupee stayed put. There will be a wealth of scientific data to analyze in the days ahead. But for now, history has been made. Bill Shatner has become the first person ever to fly a toupee into space. Congratulations! 

UPDATE II (let the verbal puns begin!): Despite tremendous stresses and g-forces, the parachute and capsule remained firmly attached to each other at all times during the final stage of reentry. Remarkable technologies have ensured that the risk of a separation is all but impossible.

  1. I wish he'd bring all different styles from the past 60 years and put them all on for old times' sake.

  2. That looks like an Edward Katz Special he's sporting there for the big day. I hope it's had some good maintenance in advance.

  3. This is surely the biggest test any toupee has ever had to face.

  4. He wore a baseball cap to help pat it down! Top toupee-tethering against the G-force.

  7. Shatner says Prince William misses the point of space tourism: "The point is to create a business where toupees are sent into space so they can relax in zero-G and return to Earth ready to resume their duties for their owners, making them look better than ever" said Shatner, who was busy touting his latest album entitled "Bill".

  8. that is brilliant!

    and as an aside I want to say shattoupblog: you need to come back; the same way the siren song of the enterprise lured James Kirk back into her captaincy, so must you return to manning this wonderful blog. It's your first best destiny.

    Shatner's "makeup secret" is accidentally discovered during TOS!

  10. What's with comment block on your ridiculous claim of the CBC and BBC being fair news sources? They are propaganda machines. You obviously don't live in Canada. Shatner was right when he said "What about the bbc and the cbc?" I like your blog but I can't believe you would support these 'News sources.' CBC has practically ruined Canada, along with all the 'Paid for by the liberals' legacy news sources that support propaganda.
