Captain's log, star date October 13th, 2021. 90-year-old actor William Shatner officially became the oldest person in space as Blue Origin successfully launched the Star Trek legend and three others to the edge of space. The 10-minute flight went off without a hitch and landed smoothly in the West Texas desert. Upon exiting the capsule, an emotional Shatner called the experience "indescribable" and said, "everybody in the world needs to do this. Everybody in the world needs to see this." He added, "I am so filled with emotion with what just happened."
