Jeff Bezos knows how to show rich people a good time- take them to space, and the billionaires latest launch included none other than William Shatner. While the actor played Captain Kirk in the Star Trek franchise, it marked his first time in space and he is officially the oldest person to ever do so. He traveled with three other passengers aboard a rocketship flown by Bezoss company Blue Origin and the journey lasted 10 minutes and 17 seconds to the edge of space. Shatner emerged from the capsule after it returned to the Texas desert under a parachute and there were the sounds of cheers and champagne bottles popping. The ecstatic actor embraced the Walt Disney of space trips and couldnt hold back his tears, What you have given me is the most profound experience I can imagine, he said. Hola USA!
