William Shatner must wait at least one more day before flying in a space rocket.
Shatner, the actor who played Captain Kirk in “Star Trek,” was to fly in a Blue Origin rocket Tuesday, October 12.
Forecasted winds forced the launch date to Wednesday, October 13th at 8:30 AM CDT.
“As part of today’s Flight Readiness Review, the mission operations team confirmed the vehicle has met all mission requirements and astronauts began their training today. The company stated that weather is the only limiting factor in the launch window.
The rocket will carry four crew members, including Shatner, and will launch from Texas.
“I’ve heard about space for a long time now. I’m taking the opportunity to see it for myself. What a miracle,” Shatner said.
Shatner will reach space at the age of 90.
This flight will mark the second human flight by Blue Origin.
Blue Origin’s founder Jeff Bezos was present on a successful flight that took off on July 20.
