Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin announced Monday actor William Shatner, 90, will be on the next Blue Origin flight alongside Audrey Powers, Blue Origin's vice president of mission and flight operations, Chris Boshuizen and Glen de Vries.
"I've heard about space for a long time now," Shatner said in a press release. "I'm taking the opportunity to see it for myself. What a miracle."
The New Shepard NS-18 flight will lift off October 12.
The journey will take 11 minutes and soar past the Kármán Line, the internationally recognized boundary of space.
