William Shatner Launching to Space with Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin, Watch Live Stream
William Shatner‘s about to rocket into space, courtesy of Jeff Bezos and one of his Blue Origin rockets … and you can watch his
journey trek to the stars right here.
Captain Kirk and his crew — which includes Blue Origin’s vice president of mission and flight operations Audrey Powers, former NASA engineer Chris Boshuizen, and software mogul Glen de Vries — are counting down to their liftoff … targeted for 9:00 AM CDT in Texas.
The iconic, 90-year-old actor is set to become the oldest person to ever go up into space, beating out 82-year-old test pilot Wally Funk … who joined Bezos, his brother, Mark, and recent HS grad Oliver Daemen, when they took Blue Origin’s New Shepard capsule up for its premiere launch in July.
As you’ll recall … that initial crew went up to space for about 15 minutes, reached an altitude of 66.5 miles, floated around for a bit in zero-gravity while playing with ping-pong balls … then came back down for safe landing.
Shatner’s civilian flight will be very similar, but our sources say the mission will be also filmed for a documentary.
Still no word if Shatner will be decked out in ‘Star Trek’ gear … but we’ll see soon.
