Blue Origin's second space flight was also successful, 90-year-old William Shatner created history

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos's company Blue Origin created history by successfully flying into space for the second time. Canadian actor William Shatner was also part of the crew on this flight. His age is 90 years. With this he became the oldest person to travel in space. The name of the launched rocket is NS-18. It had four crew members.

In addition to Shatner, the crew included Blue Origin Vice President Andre Powers, Plant Lab co-founder Chris Bashuijn and Medidata cofounder Glenn de Vries. This vehicle left for space at around 7.30 pm Indian time. This is New Shepard's 18th mission. This is New Shepard's 18th mission. This mission lasted about 10 minutes. During this time the speed of the rocket was three times the speed of sound. This rocket was fully automatic. That is, there was no pilot in it.

While coming down from space, the crew made a safe landing in the desert areas of Texas with the help of parachutes. This rocket can be reused. The rocket New Shepard is named after Alan Shepard, the first American to go into space. 

Internationally, 100 km above the Earth is considered the limit of space. This is called the Carman line. The rocket flew beyond this limit.

Let us tell you that on July 20, Blue Origin successfully made its first manned flight. This included Jeff Bezos, his brother Mark Bezos, 18-year-old Oliver Damon and 82-year-old Wally Funk. Then Funk made history by going to space at the oldest age. Now this achievement is in the name of William Shatner.

Interestingly, Shatner played the character of Captain Kirk in the Hollywood superhit series Star Trek. After this, he played the same character in the film made on it. After reel life, he has also visited Antribh in real life.
