William “Kirk” Shatner ha viajado con éxito al espacio

By Ninian Carter

October 12, 2021 - William Shatner – Capitán Kirk en el clásico de culto Star Trek – se aventuró hasta donde ningún actor de ciencia ficción de 90 años lo había hecho, a bordo del cohete Blue Origin de Jeff Bezos. Es la persona de mayor edad que ha viajado al espacio.

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.
