Shatner, Trek’s Kirk, reaches final frontier on Blue Origin ship
Al Jazeera, 14 Oct 2021
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 on board a ship built by Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin Company.
The Star Trek hero became the oldest person to ride a rocket, eclipsing the previous record — set by a passenger on a similar jaunt on a Bezos spaceship in July — by eight years.
