“It’s (Space Crystals) romance appealed to me and when they asked me to be a part of it, I looked at them with sconce, but then I read the biographies of the people involved, these are extraordinary people with a great history, a provenance if you will and as a result of their reputations and their previous accomplishments, I joined this company. This is going to be really different, unique a first time happening and I am proud to be a part of it.”
In a career spanning seven decades, he is best known for his portrayal of James T. Kirk in the Star Trek franchise, from his 1966 debut as the captain of the starship Enterprise in the second pilot of the first Star Trek television series to his final appearance as Captain Kirk in the seventh Star Trek feature film, Star Trek Generations (1994).
Shatner began his screen acting career in Canadian films and television productions before moving into guest-starring roles in various U.S. television shows. He appeared as James Kirk in all the episodes of Star Trek: The Original Series, 21 of the 22 episodes of Star Trek: The Animated Series, and the first seven Star Trek movies. He has written a series of books chronicling his experiences before, during and after his time in a Starfleet uniform. He has also co-written several novels set in the Star Trek universe and a series of science fiction novels, the TekWar sequence, that were adapted for television. Outside Star Trek, Shatner played the eponymous veteran police sergeant in T. J. Hooker (1982–1986) and hosted the reality-based television series Rescue 911 (1989–1996), which won a People’s Choice Award for Favorite New TV Dramatic Series. His appearances as a guest star in two episodes of the television detective series Columbo, almost two decades apart, were among his many such contributions to television shows from the 1970s to the 2010s.
Aside from acting, Shatner has had a career as a recording artist, beginning in 1968 with his album The Transformed Man. His cover versions of songs are dramatic recitations of their lyrics rather than musical performances: the most notable are his versions of the Beatles’ “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds”, Bob Dylan’s “Mr. Tambourine Man”, and Elton John’s “Rocket Man”. His most successful album was his third, Seeking Major Tom (2011), which includes covers of Pink Floyd’s “Learning to Fly”, David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” and Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”.
In 2021, Shatner flew into space aboard a Blue Origin sub-orbital capsule. At age 90, he became the oldest person to fly in space and one of the first 600 to do so. Minutes after the flight, he described experiencing the overview effect.
Greg Chamitoff, PhD.
STS 124/134 Mission Specialist
ISS 17/18 Flight Engineer & Science Officer
Professor of Engineering Practice, Texas A&M University
Space Crystals – Science and Engineering advisor & STEAM programs Ambassador
“My name is Greg Chamitoff and I’m a former NASA Astronaut, Space Station Flight Engineer and Science Officer, who lived and worked on the Space Station for almost 200 days. I’m also a Professor at Texas A&M University and I’m thrilled to be part of the new Space Crystals program!”
Greg Chamitoff led a distinguished career at NASA but one thing that set him apart was his creativity and out of the box thinking and he was involved with several first-time events while on orbit. In 2008, Chamitoff voted from outer space, he also conducted a live-from-space satellite chat with students attending school in London.
As part of his personal allowance, Chamitoff brought the first bagels into space, 3 bags (18 sesame seed bagels) of Fairmount Bagels with him, from his cousin’s bagel bakery. He also bought a velcro chess set and started playing games against mission control, which got quite competitive. Chamitoff also placed a Mezuzah shaped like a rocket made by British-Israeli silversmith Laura Cowan “on the door post near his bunk bed” on the International Space Station.
While millionaire space tourist Richard Garriott was aboard the ISS at the beginning of Expedition 18, Chamitoff and Garriott juggled tennis balls and filmed the first magic show in space, and along with Yury Lonchakov, Michael Fincke and Richard Garriott, filmed a science-fiction movie made in space, Apogee of Fear.
After conducting experiments with the SPHERES during his mission, he founded the Zero Robotics competition, where high school students program the robots.
Chamitoff served as a mission specialist on STS-134, the penultimate Space Shuttle mission, during which he made two spacewalks, the last of which completed the construction of the ISS.

show the unique variety in the crystal development; much like our DNA codes, no two are alike.
