Former Star Trek actor William Shatner has become the oldest person to travel to space!

Shatner is 90-years-old and recently went to the edge of space in Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin capsule. He landed safely back on Earth after just 15minutes.

The actor was joined by three other crew members on the NS-18 space mission.

After landing Mr. Shatner said: “Everybody in the world needs to do this.” “It was unbelievable.”

Mr. Shatner is most famous for playing Captain James T Kirk of the USS Enterprise in the original Star Trek TV series in the 1960s, and later appearing in films of the series.
