Captain Kirk is hissing off into space today

The “Star Trek” icon William Shatner is supposed to actually fly into space for the first time this Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. CEST. The 90-year-old Canadian actor, who became famous above all for his role as “Captain Kirk” on the spaceship Enterprise, is supposed to go on a ten-minute excursion to all with a space capsule from the Blue Origin company owned by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.

Shatner would become the oldest human ever to travel to space. Due to the forecast of stronger winds, the flight originally planned for Tuesday was postponed to Wednesday.
