Actor William Shatner, best known for playing Captain Kirk in “Star Trek,” successfully flew into space Wednesday morning at the age of 90.
William Shatner left Earth at around 11 a.m. aboard the New Shepard rocket manufactured by Blue Origin, an aerospace company owned by former Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos who himself flew into space in July. The flight, which took off from the Blue Origin launch site near Van Horn, Texas, lasted for a little over ten minutes and reached a height of 62 miles, just past the Karman Line, which is the internationally recognized boundary of space.
