William Shatner Blue Origin launch LIVE – Watch as Star Trek actor, 90, heads to space on Jeff Bezos’ New Shepard rocket

STAR Trek legend William Shatner is currently on his way into space to become the world’s oldest astronaut.

The 90-year-old, who played Captain James T Kirk in the sci-fi series said: “I’ve heard about space for a long time now. I’m taking the opportunity to see it for myself. What a miracle.”

The Blue Origin’s New Shepard rocket mission comes just 12 weeks after Blue Origin’s first-ever crewed launch, which carried Amazon chief Jeff Bezos into space. 

Today’s launch was delayed by wind for more than 24 hours but finally launched today at 3.50pm UK time (10.50am EST).
