Well not really, but nearly!
William Shatner and Wil Wheaton have been commissioned to add the voice over for NASA’s latest video that explains the Curiosity rover mission to Mars.
Come on, what better people could you have doing the voice over for a short video that explains the Curiosity rover’s imminent descent to the planet surface of Mars?
NASA’s PR department have had a stroke of genius and one can’t help thinking why hasn’t someone thought of this before.
William Shatner, the godfather of Star Trek and the original Captin Kirk, adds his weighty and iconic voice to the NASA made video entitled Grand Entrance. It makes a rather dry video seem like the teaser for a Hollywood blockbuster.
Not only have NASA managed to get William Shatner on board, but in a fantastic coup they have also managed to get another sci-fi legend Wil Wheaton (aka Wesley Crusher) to help out on voice over duties.
The actual descent of Curiosity will be broadcast live to an audience of 200 at London’s Natural History Museum at 6am on the 6th of August, 2012.
Whose voice over do you think is best?
