Shatner visits, returns from the final frontier

Source: Yahoo! News

“William Shatner can now say he’s gone boldly where no man (his age) has gone before. He’s certainly not the first person to visit space, but as of Wednesday the ‘Star Trek’ veteran is the oldest. At 90, the actor joined Blue Origin, founded by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos in 2000, for its second-ever human spaceflight. Shatner and three others were launched in a New Shepard rocket from the aerospace company’s West Texas launch site just before 11 a.m. ET. … The crew safely landed back on Earth several minutes later, when Shatner could be heard saying the experience was ‘unlike anything they described.’ All four passengers on board gave a thumbs up to the recovery crew upon landing to indicate they were OK.” (10/13/21)
