Now 90 years old, William Shatner will soon be the oldest person who's ever flown to space.

Shatner, an actor who made history in his role as James T. Kirk, the first-ever "Star Trek" captain in the original series, which premiered in 1966, will soon fly to space and, in doing so, make history.

On Oct. 12, Shatner will launch to space and back as a passenger on a suborbital flight aboard Blue Origin's New Shepard vehicle.

With this short jaunt, Shatner will become the oldest person to ever reach space.

For the last few months, legendary aviator Wally Funk, one of the famous "Mercury 13," as they were later dubbed, has held the title of the oldest person to fly to space.

At age 82, she made her first spaceflight as a passenger aboard Blue Origin's New Shepard vehicle with the company's first crewed spaceflight on July 20.

Funk, in turn, broke NASA astronaut John Glenn's previous record.

Glenn, who, in 1962 became the first American to orbit Earth as well as the third American in space as part of NASA's Project Mercury, became the oldest person to reach space in 1998.

At the age of 77, he flew to space as a payload specialist with NASA's space shuttle mission STS-95 aboard the shuttle Discovery.
