In a Blue Origin Rocket, William Shatner Finally Goes to Space From the article: "William Shatner, the actor best known as the heroic Captain James T. Kirk in “Star Trek,” and three other passengers returned safely from a brief trip to the edge of space on Wednesday. Mr. Shatner, 90, became the world’s oldest space traveler on the flight, which was the latest excursion over the West Texas desert aboard a rocket built by Blue Origin for space tourists. The private space company is owned by Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon and one of the wealthiest men on the planet." Pretty cool, apparently Bezos offered him a complimentary ride while 2 of the other passengers paid around $250,000 to go into space for a short period of time. I was he would have put a Star Fleet insignia on his jacket though.
