We recently reported that William Shatner would boldly go where he has boldly gone before-Space! The Star Trek legend was on board Jeff Bezo’s Blue Origin spaceship that launched on October 13, 2021. The ship launched from Texas with Shatner, a former NASA engineer, an employee of Blue Origin, and a co-founder of a software company. The launch was successful; Shatner became the oldest person to go to space at 90 years old.
“I’m taking the opportunity to see it for myself. What a miracle,” said the actor in a statement.
You can watch the launch below.
Congratulations, Captain, on a successful space mission. We look forward to hearing your Captain’s log on this adventure.
