William Shatner Rockets to Space and Back on a Blue Origin Suborbital Flight

William Shatner, the alter ego of one of the most iconic space travelers ever, has completed his first real trip to space. The iconic 90-year-old actor best known for playing James T. Kirk, captain of the Starship Enterprise in the Star Trek universe, blasted off atop a Blue Origin New Shepard rocket from the company’s west Texas launch site on October 13, 2021. A few minutes into the flight, the capsule separated from the booster and continued on to suborbital space where the crew experienced weightlessness and an epic view of Earth before reentering the atmosphere for a parachute-assisted soft landing in the desert.
