William Shatner, Captain Kirk of the original “Star Trek” television series and movies, is slated to travel into space on the Blue Origin on Oct. 12, 2021 as a guest of Jeff Bezo, who owns Blue Origin. At age 90, Shatner will become the oldest person to go into space. It’s said the trip will last 10 minutes and the rocket will reach an altitude of 66 miles.
