Since then, Shatner has also become the oldest passenger ever to board space. Interestingly, the original record was also created by Blue Origin. On July 20 this year, 82-year-old Wally Funk and Bezos completed a suborbital space journey together.
After landing, Shatner shed tears with excitement in front of Bezos. He expressed affectionately that “what he saw with his own eyes is completely different from hearsay…everyone in the world should try it. It’s incredible.”
It is reported that when the spacecraft reaches a flight altitude of about 105 kilometers, it separates from the launch rocket and flies autonomously for about four minutes (passengers can experience real weightlessness), during which the passengers are in a state of weightlessness. After that, the capsule was carried back home by parachute and landed in the Texas desert in the United States.
It is worth mentioning that this new Shepard rocket successfully completed its autonomous vertical landing and recovery 7 minutes after launch.
