William Shatner, best known as playing the role of Captain James T. Kirk, launched into space today (Wednesday) with Blue Origin. The launch took place after a short delay. At the age of 90, he is now the oldest person in space.
His flight lasted 10 minutes round-trip reaching a height of 351,000. After he returned Shatner said, everybody in the world needs to do this.
If parting ways with a couple hundred thousand dollars was easy to swallow, then yeah, sign me up!
