William Shatner has boldly gone where no 90-year-old has gone before. The "Star Trek" icon made history as the oldest person to be launched into space, flying aboard Blue Origin's New Shepard rocket on Wednesday. He and three other passengers landed safely in West Texas, completing the aerospace company's second human flight. Shatner was visibly emotional upon returning to Earth, telling Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos how much the experience shifted his perspective about humanity.
