Sumary of ‘Profound experience’: Star Trek’s William Shatner becomes world’s oldest space traveler:

  • Joining Shatner were former NASA engineer Chris Boshuizen, clinical research entrepreneur Glen de Vries and Blue Origin vice president and engineer Audrey Powers.
  • Shatner’s participation helped generate publicity for Blue Origin as it competes against two billionaire-backed rivals – Elon Musk’s SpaceX and Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic Holdings Inc – to attract customers willing to pay large sums to experience spaceflight.
  • On that flight, pioneering female aviator Wally Funk at age 82 became the oldest person to reach space.
  • The previous record was set in 1998 when pioneering astronaut John Glenn returned to space as a 77-year-old U.S. senator.
