That's what launch escape systems are made for after all. "Beautiful" demonstration of how properly it can work. A successful failure. Spaceflight is a very tough business.

William Shatner: My Trip to Space Filled Me With ‘Overwhelming Sadness’

https://variety.com/2022/tv/news/william-shatner-space-boldly-go-excerpt-1235395113/

In this exclusive excerpt from William Shatner’s new book, “Boldly Go: Reflections on a Life of Awe and Wonder,” the “Star Trek” actor reflects on his voyage into space on Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin space shuttle on Oct. 13, 2021. Then 90 years old, Shatner became the oldest living person to travel into space, but as the actor and author details below, he was surprised by his own reaction to the experience.

In the youtube video description:
Update: We're scrubbing #NS24 today due to a ground system issue the team is troubleshooting. We’ll provide a new launch target for this week soon.

After too many words, the rocket finally shows up. A bit cloudy at the moment...
