The Blue Origin flight carrying Star Trek actor William Shatner just lifted off into space. Shatner is riding alongside three others.
At age 90, Shatner is the oldest person to have flown in space. The New Shepard NS-18 flight will take 11 minutes and soar past the Kármán Line, the internationally recognized boundary of space.
Shatner posted this tweet, a quote from Sir Isaac Newton.
I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, diverting myself in now & then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.🚀 pic.twitter.com/ZY2Ka8ij7z— William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) October 13, 2021
