The actor who played Captain Kirk in the Star Trek series is set to embark on a real-life journey into space.

US tech billionaire Jeff Bezos's space travel company Blue Origin confirmed that William Shatner would be blasting off from Texas on 12 October.

Aged 90, the actor will become the oldest person to have flown into space.

"I've heard about space for a long time now. I'm taking the opportunity to see it for myself. What a miracle," Shatner said in a statement.

Shatner will be joining three other people aboard Blue Origin's New Shepard rocket for the company's second human spaceflight.

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos joined the fir...t in July, along with his brother, an 82-year-old pioneer of the space race and an 18-year-old student.

He looks incredible for a 90 year old man but I hope they´ll do enough tests on him before he embarks on his journey.

Is he invited or will he have to pay for his trip?

I wondered the same thing. I don't think he's telling. I'm sure it'll be a wonderful experience for him though. He stays so active.
