الكابتن كيرك حقيقةً في الفضاء

By Ninian Carter

October 13, 2021 - وليام شاتنر - الذي لعب دور الكابتن كيرك في فيلم ستار تريك الكلاسيكي - انطلق بجرأة إلى حيث لم يذهب أي ممثل خيال علمي يبلغ من العمر 90 عاماً من قبل، على متن صاروخ بلو أوريجين لصاحبه جيف بيزوس. إنه أكبر شخص سناً على الإطلاق يتوجه إلى الفضاء

After nearly a lifetime playing Captain Kirk in the Star Trek television series and spin-off movies, actor William Shatner is set to “boldly go where no man has gone before”.

Shatner will be joined by three crew mates aboard the Blue Origin New Shepard NS-18 – Audrey Powers (Blue Origin’s vice president of missions and flight operations, and a former NASA flight controller), and Chris Boshuizen and Glen de Vries (two paying customers).

At 90 years old, he will become the oldest person to ever travel into space - fulfilling a lifelong ambition.

The rocket will blast off from West Texas on October 12, sending the crew on a 10 minute journey. It will reach altitude of 106km – just beyond the Karman Line, the most widely recognised boundary of space.
