William Shatner is going from starring in “Star Trek” to seeing the real stars above. The sci-fi actor, 90, will be going to space aboard Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’ New Shepard rocket, according to TMZ.
Bezos’ galaxy rider is made by his space-travel company, Blue Origin.
Shatner would be the oldest person ever to travel to space with this historic ride, TMZ reported.
The Canada native’s 15-minute flight will occur sometime in October. The outlet also reported that the mission will be filmed for an upcoming documentary featuring the actor who played Capt. James T. Kirk on the iconic series.
Bezos, 57, first went up to space in July alongside his brother, Mark Bezos; pioneering pilot Wally Funk, who at 82 is the oldest space visitor to date; and rich Dutch student Oliver Daemen, then 18 and the youngest person to go to space.
