Into The Final Frontier…William Shatner Lifts Off Into Space!

William Shatner launched into space today with Blue Origin.

The launch took place today after bad weather postponed yesterday’s original launch date.

At the age of 90, the former Star Trek star is now the oldest person in space.

His flight lasted 10 minutes round-trip reaching a height of 351,000.

After he returned Shatner said, everybody in the world needs to do this.

The actor was accompanied by Audrey Powers, Blue Origin’s vice president of mission and flight operations, as well as crew mates Chris Boshuizen and Glen de Vries.

Shatner’s expedition was the latest in what has been a recent flurry of space tourism flights. Nine days before Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos flew to the edge of space, British billionaire Richard Branson completed his own suborbital joyride, through his own space tourism company, Virgin Galactic.

If money wasn’t an issue, would you go up into space?
