Fans applauded Willliam Shatner, aka Captain Kirk, as he blasted off into space in Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin rocket, making him the oldest person in space at 90 years old. The historic journey in the New Shepard rocket began at 9:30 a.m. ET on Wednesday, October 13. Blue Origin’s YouTube channel broadcasted the flight live. After the landing, social media sleuths identified a ‘cringe’ moment when Shatner became emotional while sharing his profound experience of being in space, but Jeff Bezos cut him off in the middle of his speech to pop the champagne.

William Shatner and his crew took off atop a hydrogen-fueled rocket, climbed to the edge of space more than 62 miles up, and experienced three to four minutes of weightlessness before returning to a gentle parachute-assisted landing. “It was so moving to me..”

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” Shatner said after the landing. He also stated that Bezos provided him with the most profound experience imaginable. “What just happened has filled me with such emotion… it’s extraordinary,” he said. Captain Kirk in space?
