William Shatner heading into space with Jeff Bezos

Shatner heading into space

Star Trek icon William Shatner is heading into space - for real.

The actor has been invited to join the Blue Origin crew on billionaire Amazon boss Jeff Bezos' next rocket ship mission to the stars and back.

Bezos and his crew have already enjoyed one successful space flight in July, and TMZ sources claim 90-year-old Shatner, who played Captain Kirk for years on TV, will be part of the next take-off in the New Shepard capsule on Oct. 15.

If the 15-minute mission goes to plan, the actor will become the oldest person ever to be launched into space.

Insiders claim the space flight will be filmed for a documentary.
