Depending on whether or not you accept the Karman Line as the beginning of space, the previous Blue Origin's flight sent aloft Wally Funk, age 82, beating Glenn's record. And now Shatner is the oldest at age 90.Well, there goes the record held by John Glenn: The first American to orbit the Earth, John Glenn made history again when, at the age of 77, he became the oldest person to travel in space ...
Keeping in mind that dismissing suborbital flights rewrites the history books saying that Alan Shepard was the first American in space and no less than eight X-15 pilots were officially given astronaut's wings for flying into space.Take a real ride, not a three-minute spurt. Don’t be a pseudo-naut.
Read this some years ago.AND...if you gonna be a pseudo-naut:
Please please don’t fly up in a d***k-head rocket.
At least take the virgin that looks like a shuttle.
