It’s rumored that  William Shatner will be the oldest person to go to space. Shatner is 90years old. He will be on board as  civilian with Jeff Bezos’s next space mission on board the New Shepard capsule, as reported by TMZ.

The flight is scheduled to orbit in October and will last 15 minutes up in space. The Star Trek star paid to be a part of the intergalactic crew. The previous flight’s final seat cost over $20 million at auction. The rocket was previously launched in July with four passengers, including Bezos and his brother. Shatner tweeted out a mocked-up image of him in an astronaut suit, encouraging NASA to send him out. “BTW @NASA – just in case; the suit does fit!” he wrote. However he added, he had some concerns in light of the 1986 Challenger flight, which led to the deaths of seven astronauts.

Shatner said, “There’s a possibility that I’m going to go up for a brief moment and come back down.” at an online San Diego Comic-Con pane in July.
