William Shatner‘s about to rocket into space, courtesy of Jeff Bezos and one of his Blue Origin rockets … and you can watch his
journey trek to the stars right here.
Captain Kirk and his crew — which includes Blue Origin’s vice president of mission and flight operations Audrey Powers, former NASA engineer Chris Boshuizen, and software mogul Glen de Vries — are counting down to their liftoff … targeted for 9:00 AM CDT in Texas.
The iconic, 90-year-old actor is set to become the oldest person to ever go up into space, beating out 82-year-old test pilot Wally Funk … who joined Bezos, his brother, Mark, and recent HS grad Oliver Daemen, when they took Blue Origin’s New Shepard capsule up for its premiere launch in July.
As you’ll recall … that initial crew went up to space for about 15 minutes, reached an altitude of 66.5 miles, floated around for a bit in zero-gravity while playing with ping-pong balls … then came back down for safe landing.
Shatner’s civilian flight will be very similar, but our sources say the mission will be also filmed for a documentary.
Still no word if Shatner will be decked out in ‘Star Trek’ gear … but we’ll see soon.
