William Shatner, TV's Capt. Kirk, blasts into space

BY , Oct 13, 2021 4:39 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Hollywood's Captain Kirk, 90-year-old William Shatner, has blasted into space and safely returned to Earth in a convergence of science fiction and science reality.

He set out Wednesday morning for the final frontier aboard a ship built by Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin company.

The ``Star Trek'' hero becomes the oldest person to ride a rocket.

The fully automatic spacecraft reached an altitude of 66.5 miles over the West Texas desert.

The up-and-down flight lasted about 10 minutes, with Shatner and his three fellow passengers parachuting back to Earth in the capsule.
