‘I’m a little frightened’: Star Trek actor William Shatner set to become the oldest person in space

William Shatner, the actor whose fictional mission was “to boldly go where no man had gone before”, will today become the oldest person ever to travel to the edge of space.

The 90-year-old Canadian star, who played Captain Kirk in the iconic 1960s TV series Star Trek, will be part of a four-person crew aboard a Blue Origin rocket when it blasts off from the Texas desert.
