Blue Origin to send Star Trek actor shipinto space today

Today, October 13, Canadian actor William Shatner, who played Captain Kirk in the TV series and films “Star Trek”, will truly fly into space aboard Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin spacecraft.

The crew will also include Blue Origin Vice President of Flights Audrey Powers, former NASA engineer Dr. Chris Boschuisen and Dassault Systèmes VP of Life Sciences and Health Affairs Glen de Vries.

To date, the actor from “Star Trek” is 90 years old: he will become the oldest person in space. Shatner called the future flight a miracle. He has long wanted to go to space, told Blue Origin.

The entire flight will take 15 minutes and a documentary will be filmed about it.

Previously, they wanted to launch the launch on October 12, but the flight was postponed for a day due to predicted winds, so the New Shepard spacecraft will go into space on October 13.
