William Shatner is set to get launched into space on Wednesday morning as part of the Blue Origin mission called NS-18.

The 90-year-old Shatner, who is best known for his portrayal of Captain James T. Kirk of the USS Enterprise in the Star Trek franchise, will become the oldest person ever in space.

The New Shepard mission NS-18 will be taking place at 10:00 a.m. ET out of Blue Origin’s launch facility in Van Horn, Texas.

You can watch the launch below:

“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 in a statement about the mission.

It will be the second crewed flight for New Shepard, which is a reusable passenger rocket that takes passengers to the edge of space. Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos was a part of the first flight back in July. The entire flight takes 11 minutes.

Shatner will be joined by three others on the NS-18 crew — two of them are paying customers.
