(TheConservativeNews.org) – Space tourism is catching fire and gaining popularity quickly as the new-age space race continues. Over the summer, Virgin Galactic launched its founder, Sir Richard Branson, and five others into space. 

Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos flew into space with his brother and two others on Blue Origin just a week after Branson. Now, Blue Origin has made its second manned flight, and who better to send into space than Captain Kirk himself?

That’s right, William Shatner, the original Captain Kirk in the sci-fi series “Star Trek,” went to space. In doing so, Shatner became the oldest person to go beyond the Karman Line, the internationally recognized boundary between Earth and the vastness beyond. 

The experience was emotional for Shatner, 90, who made teary-eyed remarks after successfully traveling to space and landing back down on Earth. He noted that the view is something everyone should see, calling it beautiful. 

Shatner explained that while in space and seeing the Earth from a perspective not many have, he could feel the life and comfort below — but the actor wasn’t sure what to make of the void of space above. He explained that when you look up, all you see is black, and when you look down, there’s light.
