It’s official: Billionaire Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin will launch 90-year-old William Shatner into space on Oct. 12. The Star Trek actor—the oldest person to ever be shot into space—will travel aboard New Shepard NS-18 with Audrey Powers, Blue Origin’s vice president of mission and flight operations, as well as crewmates Chris Boshuizen and Glen de Vrie, according to a press release. “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. He’s scheduled to lift off at 8:30 am CT from Launch Site One in West Texas.
