Shatner teared up telling Amazon/Blue Origin owner Jeff Bezos, "What you have given me is the most profound experience. I'm so filled with emotion about what just happened. It's extraordinary. Extraordinary."

Captain Kirk is certainly the oldest man to be launched into space. But he has another space record as well - cause I'm pretty sure he's also the fattest man ever to be launched on a rocket. ("Houston, we have a problem, Shatner is wolfing down all the crew's snackables!") :pound:
