Captain Kirk is finally headed to space for real. According to TMZ, William Shatner plans to be part of the next civilian crew to fly aboard Blue Origin's spacecraft. If it happens, Shatner, 90, will be the oldest person to visit space, taking the record from Wally Funk, 82, who in July joined Jeff Bezos and two other private citizens for a short jaunt past the edge of space. Wonder if Bezos will rename his rocket the Enterprise.
Our sources say the mission will be filmed for a documentary. We're told Shatner's people were talking to Discovery about the special, but that didn't materialize … but our sources say Shatner and Co. have taken the project elsewhere and are in negotiations.
