Actor William Shatner, who became famous for portraying James T. Kirk, captain of the ship Enterprise in the series and films of ‘Star Trek’, will undertake a trip to space next month on the ship of Blue Origin, a company of Jeff Bezos aerospace transportation, reported this Friday TMZ with reference to sources familiar with the matter.

The 90-year-old Canadian star is scheduled to join the New Shepard ship’s second crew, which would make him the longest-lived person ever launched into space. The mission, which will last 15 minutes, will be filmed for a documentary. At the same time, it is still unclear who will accompany him on this flight.

Shatner’s trip is more likely to be financed by Bezos, which would be “a smart move” from the founder of Blue Origin. It should be remembered that the civil seat for the first expedition was sold for more than 20 million dollars.

The current record is held by the American John Glenn, died in 2016. In 1998, when he was still a senator, he flew on NASA’s Space Shuttle Discovery mission STS-95, becoming, at 77, the oldest person to ever travel to space and the only one to flew on the Mercury and Space Shuttle programs.
