WWE Celebrity Hall of Famer William Shatner will make history as the oldest man to ever travel into Outer Space this morning.  For those of you who want to watch Shatner's trip live, you can do so below:

 Shatner, who famously played Captain James T. Kirk on Star Trek on both television and films, will ride into space on Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin Capsule.  

Shatner, appearing from his home, was inducted into the 2020 WWE Hall of Fame class earlier this year.  Accepting the honor, Shatner said he was born in Montreal and a lot of great wrestlers came from Montreal.  He said he never wrestled but it eas a great honor to throw Jerry Lawler out of the ring.  He noted he was and is a big WWE fan and accepted the honor as someone who had the delight of following some of his greatest heroes. 

Shatner has made numerous appearances on WWE programming over the years.  In 1995, he appeared on Monday Night Raw in an in-ring King's Court segment where he nailed Jerry Lawler with a monkey flip.

Shatner also hosted an episode of Raw in February 2010, which provided the world with this great vignette:

The original press release from Blue Origin reads:

William Shatner

William Shatner’s career as an actor, director, producer, writer, recording artist, and horseman has spanned 60 years. He originated the role of “Captain James T. Kirk” in 1966 for the television series Star Trek. The series spawned a feature film franchise where Shatner returned as Captain Kirk in seven of the Star Trek movies, one of which he directed. He has long wanted to travel to space and will become the oldest person to have flown to space.

Shatner is currently the host and executive producer of The UnXplained on The History Channel. From the producers of Ancient Aliens and The Curse of Oak Island, the one-hour, non-fiction series explores the world’s most fascinating, strange and inexplicable mysteries.

“I’ve heard about space for a long time now. I’m taking the opportunity to see it for myself. What a miracle,” said William Shatner.

Audrey Powers

Audrey joined Blue Origin in 2013 and oversees all New Shepard flight operations, vehicle maintenance, and launch, landing, and ground support infrastructure. In collaboration with New Shepard’s Safety & Mission Assurance team, Test & Flight Operations, Chief Engineers, and external partners, Audrey played a lead role in the multi-year process to certify New Shepard for human flight. Prior to leading New Shepard’s Mission and Flight Operations team, she served as Deputy General Counsel and Vice President of Legal & Compliance for Blue Origin, overseeing a wide variety of legal, regulatory and policy matters.

Audrey worked as an engineer for almost a decade before becoming a lawyer.

In addition to serving as executive sponsor of Blue Origin’s New Mercury gender diversity business resource group, she is a pilot and serves as the Chair of the Board of Directors of the Commercial Spaceflight Federation.

“I’m so proud and humbled to fly on behalf of Team Blue, and I’m excited to continue writing Blue’s human spaceflight history,” said Audrey Powers. “I was part of the amazing effort we assembled for New Shepard’s Human Flight Certification Review, a years-long initiative completed in July 2021. As an engineer and lawyer with more than two decades of experience in the aerospace industry, I have great confidence in our New Shepard team and the vehicle we’ve developed.”
