William Shatner's trip to space is documented in a new special that's on Amazon Prime:
Turns out that riding a rocket into space is easy — climbing the stairs to that rocket is the real challenge. At least, that was William Shatner's experience when he participated in a round trip flight to the cosmos and back courtesy of Jeff Bezos's aerospace company, Blue Origin.
The 90-year-oldStar Trek icon was part of the four-person NS-18 crew that blasted off into low orbit on October 13, a trip that's documented in the new Amazon Prime Video documentary, Shatner in Space. And Shatner tells Yahoo Entertainment that all that stood between him and the final frontier was eleven flights of stairs.
