William Shatner Becomes Oldest Person To Fly To Space

Iconic Star Trek actor calls trip ‘incredible’

William Shatner, 90, officially became the oldest and most famous person ever to fly to space Wednesday on a rocket launched from the state of Texas.
The launch from Jeff Bezos' space company, Blue Origin, saw Shatner and three others cross briefly over the official boundary of space at 100 kilometers (62 miles) above the Earth in the New Shepard space capsule before it glided down to earth by parachute.
The four space travelers had about four minutes of weightlessness above the Earth.
Bezos opened the capsule after the landing to whoops and hollers from the elated occupants. An amazed Shatner called the trip "incredible."
It was the second successful launch by Blue Origin, which launched a crew that included Bezos in July.
Bezos is competing with fellow billionaires Elon Musk and Richard Branson to make space tourism a viable, affordable industry for future generations. -
