'Star Trek' star William Shatner flies into space for real Updated: 2021-10-14 11:48:10 KST

Star Trek's 'Captain Kirk' William Shatner flew aboard a Blue Origin rocket ship on Wednesday, becoming the oldest person ever in space.
At the age of 90, Shatner was one of four passengers to journey to the edge of space, aboard the fully autonomous New Shepard spacecraft, which took off from Texas.
The four passengers experienced about three to four minutes of weightlessness and traveled above the internationally recognized boundary of space, before returning to Earth.
And for Shatner, the experience was literally out of this world.

"What you have given me is the most profound experience I can imagine. I'm so filled with emotion about what just happened. It's extraordinary, extraordinary. I hope that I never recover from this. I hope that I can maintain what I feel now. I don't want to lose it."

The space trip also marked the second space tourism flight for Blue Origin, which billionaire businessman Jeff Bezos' company founded two decades ago.
