Blue Origin announced Sunday it was delaying an upcoming flight set to carry actor William Shatner to space due to anticipated winds. Blue Origin ’s decision to invite one of the most recognizable galaxy-faring characters from science fiction for its second crewed flight has helped maintain excitement around the nascent space tourism sector. For fans, the 10-minute hop from a West Texas base back to Earth will be a fitting coda for a pop culture phenomenon that inspired generations of astronauts.

William Shatner will have to wait another day to reach the final frontier. On that flight , the 18-year-old Daemen and the 82-year-old Funk became the youngest and oldest people ever to reach space , respectively. Shatner , who is 90, will wrest the eldest crown from Funk when NS-18 soars into the final frontier. Joining the “Star Trek” actor on the coming mission are Audrey Powers, Blue Origin ’s vice president of mission and flight operations; Chris Boshuizen, co-founder of the Earth -observation company Planet; and Glen de Vries, vice chair for life sciences and healthcare at the French software

Shatner has yet to comment on the delay.

EARLIER: During his panel at New York Comic-Con on Thursday, William Shatner revealed that he’s terrified to go into space.

“My friend Jason Erhlick came to me about a year and a half ago and he said he was seeing these rockets with people going into space. And, wouldn’t it be something if Captain Kirk went up there?” the Star Trek star said. “And I said, ‘Jason, for God’s sake, man. Nobody cares if Captain Kirk goes to space. It was 55 years ago, man. But I’m doing well, maybe I should go up to space?”

About a year passed due to Covid before a real conversation took place about Shatner following Jeff Bezos’ historic trip to space. It was announced last week that the actor will explore the final frontier for real on Bezos’ Blue Origin Spaceflight, becoming the oldest person to go to space.

“I don’t want to be the oldest guy to go into space,” the 90-year-old exclaimed to the roaring crowd.

While discussing his trip to Texas in preparation for his October 12 space flight, Shatner recalled the 1986 Challenger crash that killed all the astronauts on board. He said the people in charge of his flight repeatedly said everything should be fine, which wasn’t of much comfort for the actor.

“And I’m thinking, ‘I’m going up in a rocket and our best guess is it should be fine?” he shared. “I’m terrified. I’m Captain Kirk, and I’m terrified. I’m not really terrified — yes I am. It comes and goes like a summer cold. I’m planning on putting my nose against the window [once I’m in space], and my only hope is I won’t see someone else looking back.”
