William Shatner has officially become the oldest person to travel to space. The actor, known for his iconic role as Captain Kirk on Star Trek, blasted off to space on Blue Origin's New Shepard rocket alongside three other crewmates. The mission went off seemingly without a hitch on Wednesday after being delayed for a day due to high winds. The entire flight lasted about 11 minutes, transporting the crew from the launchpad in west Texas to just past the internationally recognized boundary of space and back. This comes about 12 weeks after Blue Origin's first ever crewed flight carried Jeff Bezos, his brother and two others into space, marking a major milestone for the space tourism industry. Andrew Chanin, CEO of ProcureAM, joined Cheddar ahead of the launch to give insight into just how significant this mission is for Blue Origin and the future of space tourism.
