Last week, actor William Shatner, Star Trek’s “Captain Kirk” announced that he would explore the final frontier… for real this time! He’s expected to become the oldest person to go to space when he boards Blue Origin Spaceflight, the latest project of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.
On Thursday at New York Comic-Con, the 90-year-old Star Trek legend revealed that he’s terrified to go into space “I don’t want to be the oldest guy to go into space!”
He went on to say “I’m Captain Kirk, and I’m terrified. I’m not really terrified — yes I am. It comes and goes like a summer cold. I’m planning on putting my nose against the window [once I’m in space], and my only hope is I won’t see someone else looking back.”
Shatner’s trip is scheduled for October 12th.
