Captain Kirk has finally made it to space!!
William Shatner can now say he’s boldly gone where no man (his age) has gone before. At 90, the “Star Trek” actor joined Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin for its second human spaceflight yesterday. Shatner and three others were launched in a New Shepard rocket from the aerospace company’s West Texas launch site just before 11 a.m. EDT. The crew safely landed back on Earth several minutes later, when Shatner could be heard saying the experience was “unlike anything they described.” After spraying Bezos with champagne, Shatner told him: “What you have given me is the most profound experience I can imagine. I hope I never recover from this.”
