  • William Shatner blasts off into space aboard Jeff Bezos Blue Origin | FULL

    2:10:16

    Star Trek’s Captain Kirk blasted off into space Wednesday morning aboard Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin spacecraft — boldly going where no other sci-fi actors have gone.

    Jeff Bezos‘ space travel company, Blue Origin, carried Canadian actor William Shatner, who at the age of 90, became the oldest person in space. He was joined by three others — two of them paying customers — aboard a Blue Origin capsule. It was the company’s second launch with a crew.

    Bezos was on the debut flight in July, along with his brother and the youngest and oldest people to ever fly in space. Shatner will break that upper threshold by six years.

    “I’ve heard about space for a long time now. I’m taking the opportunity to see it for myself. What a miracle,” Shatner said in a statement.

    Also flying with Shatner: a former NASA engineer who founded a nanosatellite company; the co-founder of a software company specializing in clinical research; and a Blue Origin employee.

    The up-and-down space hop will last 10 minutes and reach no higher than about 66 miles (106 kilometers).

    The Hollywood star celebrated his 90th birthday this year and is even set to fulfill his dreams of space travel by actually flying into space. Born on March 22nd, 1931, William Shatner is a Canadian who boasts a multi-faceted career that'll make any striving hustler envious. He's an actor, author, producer, director, screenwriter, and singer. During his seven decades spent acting, he became a cultural icon of sorts for his iconic portrayal of James T. Kirk, cpatain of the USS Enterprise, in the original Star Trek series.

    His portrayal of Kirk extended television and into multiple films, which looked to end with 1991's Star Trek VI The Undiscovered Country. This, however, wasn't the end for Shatner's portrayal of Kirk. He teamed up with Patrick Stewart's Captain Picard from the Star Trek The Next Generation series. 1994's Star Trek Generations was the first movie based on the Next Generation characters and proved a worthy farewell to the character of Kirk. With Shatner's unique life experience of playing Kirk, he has written a series of books chronicling what it was like playing the beloved character, being a part of the Star Trek franchise, and his life after Star Trek. He has even co-written multiple novels set in the Star Trek universe and a series of science fiction novels called TekWar, which were adapted for television from 1994 to 1996.

    Shatner went on to play the veteran police sergeant in T. J. Hooker and hosted the reality-based television series Rescue 911. So with such an iconic career, and considering that he is still pushing to achieve his passions well into his 90's, what does the man himself think of all this? Join us as we take a look at William Shatner and everything from real-life space travel to his thoughts on becoming a nonagenarian.

    TV’s James T. Kirk, William Shatner, was greeted by Jeff Bezos after he returned to Earth, after taking a trip to space earlier in the day, Wednesday, October 13.
    —————————
    READ MORE: Hollywood's Captain Kirk, 90-year-old William Shatner, blasted into space Wednesday in a convergence of science fiction and science reality, reaching the final frontier aboard a ship built by Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin company.

    The Star Trek hero and three fellow passengers soared to an estimated 106 kilometers (66 miles) over the West Texas desert in the fully automated capsule, and then safely parachuted to the desert floor in a flight that lasted just over 10 minutes.

    Shatner became the oldest person in space, eclipsing the previous record — set by a passenger on a similar jaunt on a Bezos spaceship in July — by eight years.

    The 90-year-old actor who played Captain Kirk and three others went to the edge of space in a tourist spacecraft built by Jeff Bezos’ company. “It was so moving to me,” Mr. Shatner said. William Shatner became the oldest person to travel to space and cross the Kármán line. The “Star Trek” star traveled to space with three other passengers on a mission that lasted about 10 minutes

    Mr Shatner was joined on the flight by Audrey Powers, a Blue Origin vice president; Chris Boshuizen, who co-founded the Earth-imaging satellite company Planet; and Glen de Vries, an executive with the French healthcare software corporation Dassault Systèmes.

    This was only the second crewed outing for New Shepard. The first, on 20 July, carried Mr Bezos, his brother Mark, Dutch teenager Oliver Daemen; and famed aviator Wally Funk.

    Afterwards, Ms Funk, being 82, was able to claim the record for the oldest person in space - a title she has now relinquished to Mr Shatner.

    William Shatner, best known for his role as Captain Kirk in Star Trek, has become the oldest person to go to space, at the age of 90.

    His trip on the rocket system - developed by Amazon[.]com founder Jeff Bezos - lasted about 10 minutes.

    The actor, and three others who were aboard, got to experience a short period of weightlessness and see the curvature of the Earth through the capsule's big windows.

    When he landed back on Earth in the Texas desert William Shatner told Mr Bezos Everybody in the world needs to do this… It was unbelievable.

  • William Shatner, TV’s Capt. Kirk, blasts into space

    William Shatner, TV’s Capt. Kirk, blasts into space
    Hollywood’s Captain Kirk, 90-year-old William Shatner, blasted into space Wednesday in a convergence of science fiction and science reality, reaching the final frontier aboard a ship built by Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin company. The “Star Trek” actor and three fellow passengers hurtled to an altitude of 66.5 miles (107 kilometers) over the West Texas desert in the fully automated capsule, then safely parachuted back to Earth. The flight lasted just over 10 minutes. “What you have given me is the most profound experience,” an exhilarated Shatner told Bezos after climbing out the hatch, the words spilling from him in a soliloquy almost as long as the flight. “I hope I never recover from this. I hope that I can maintain what I feel now. I don’t want to lose it.” He said that going from the blue sky to the utter blackness of space was a moving experience: “In an instant you go, `Whoa, that’s death.’ That’s what I saw.” Shatner became the oldest person in space, eclipsing the previous record — set by a passenger on a similar jaunt on a Bezos spaceship in July — by eight years. The flight included about three minutes of weightlessness and a view of the curvature of the Earth. Sci-fi fans reveled in the opportunity to see the man best known as the brave and principled commander of the starship Enterprise boldly go where no star of American TV has gone before. The internet went wild, with Trekkies quoting favorite lines from Kirk, including, “Risk: Risk is our business. That’s what this starship is all about.” “This is a pinch-me moment for all of us to see Capt. James Tiberius Kirk go to space,” Blue Origin launch commentator Jacki Cortese said before liftoff. She said she, like so many others, was drawn to space by shows like “Star Trek.” NASA sent best wishes ahead of the flight, tweeting: “You are, and always shall be, our friend.” The flight brought priceless star power to Bezos’ space-tourism business, given its built-in appeal to baby boomers, celebrity watchers and space enthusiasts. Shatner starred in TV’s original “Star Trek” from 1966 to 1969, when the U.S. was racing for the moon, and went on to appear in a string of “Star Trek” movies. Bezos is a huge “Star Trek” fan — the Amazon founder had a cameo as an alien in one of the later movies — and Shatner rode free as his invited guest. As a favor to Bezos, Shatner took up into space some “Star Trek” tricorders and communicators — sort of the iPhones of the future — that Bezos made when he was a 9-year-old Trekkie. Bezos said his mother had saved them for 48 years. Bezos himself drove the four crew members to the launch pad, accompanied them to the platform high above the ground and cranked the hatch shut after they climbed aboard the 60-foot rocket. He was there to greet them when the capsule floated back to Earth under its brilliant blue-and-red parachutes. “Hello, astronauts. Welcome to Earth!” a jubilant Bezos said as he opened the hatch of the New Shepard capsule, named for first American in space, Alan Shepard. Shatner and the others wore close-fitting, flame-retardant, royal-blue flight suits, not exactly the tight, futuristic-for-the-’60s V-necks that the crew of the Enterprise had on TV. The actor said he was struck by the vulnerability of Earth and the relative sliver of its atmosphere. “Everybody in the world needs to do this. Everybody in the world needs to see,” he said. “To see the blue color whip by, and now you’re staring into blackness, that’s the thing. The covering of blue, this sheath, this blanket, this comforter of blue that we have around, we say, ‘Oh, that’s blue sky.’ And then suddenly you shoot through it all, and you’re looking into blackness, into black ugliness.” Shatner said the return to Earth was more jolting than his training led him to expect and made him wonder whether he was going to make it back alive. “Everything is much more powerful,” he said. “Bang, this thing hits. That wasn’t anything like the simulator. … Am I going to be able to survive the G-forces?” Passengers are subjected to nearly 6 G’s, or six times the force of Earth’s gravity, as the capsule descends. Blue Origin said Shatner and the rest of the crew met all the medical and physical requirements, including the ability to hustle up and down several flights of steps at the launch tower. Shatner going into space is “the most badass thing I think I’ve ever seen,” said Joseph Barra, a bartender who helped cater the launch week festivities. “William Shatner is setting the bar for what a 90-year-old man can do.” The flight comes as the space tourism industry finally takes off, with passengers joyriding aboard ships built and operated by some of the richest men in the world.
