William Shatner, 90, Will Be Oldest Person In Space
William Shatner will be making history on Wednesday morning, becoming the oldest person to go to space.
Shatner, age 90, played Captain Kirk in the hit show Star Trek and subsequent movies.
He’ll be making his own star trek as one of four members on a Blue Origin rocket.
The flight was originally scheduled for Monday but was postponed because of weather concerns.
The journey takes just 11 minutes in total and will soar past the Kármán line, the internationally recognized boundary of space.
This is Blue Origin’s second flight with paying customers on board.
The first human flight was July 20, and those onboard included company founder Jeff Bezos.
