New Shepard’s 18th mission, NS-18, will lift off on Wednesday, October 13, carrying four astronauts, Dr. Chris Boshuizen, Glen de Vries, Audrey Powers, and William Shatner, to space and back.

Barely three months after Blue Origin successfully sent its first crewed rocket to orbit, it’s poised for another launch on Wednesday, October 13. This time, instead of Blue’s founder and CEO Jeff Bezos headlining the flight, the company will be sending 90-year old William Shatner, who is set to become the oldest person to go to space.

The NS-18 mission is set to take-off from Launch Site One, the company’s sprawling launch facility near Van Horn, in the western part of Texas. The crew will be flying in the company’s New Shepard rocket. The launch was originally scheduled to fly on October 12, but Blue Orign’s Mission Operations decided on Sunday to push it back by one day due to forecasted high winds.

Meet the crew of New Shepard’s NS-18 mission:

William Shatner, the actor arguably best-known for having played Captain James T. Kirk on “Star Trek.”
Audrey Powers, who serves as the company’s vice president of New Shepard Mission & Flight Operations. She’s been with Blue since 2013, and served as its deputy general counsel before leaving the mission and flight operations team for the company’s New Shepard rocket.
Chris Boshuizen, co-founder of Planet Labs and current partner at venture capital firm DCVC.
Glen de Vries, co-founder of the clinical trial software company Medidata Solutions. He’s also the vice chair of life sciences and healthcare at Dassault Systèmes, a French software company that acquired Medidata in 2019.
The launch livestream above is set to begin at around 5:30 AM PT (8:30 AM ET) on October 13, with the launch scheduled to take place roughly one hour after.

Crew member Boshuizen joined us last year at TC Sessions: Space; the next event is coming up in December — still plenty of time to grab your tickets.

Note from Zennie62Media and OaklandNewsNow.com : this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a YouTube channel. When the video is “liked” by Zennie62 YouTube, then it is automatically uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective here, on top of our is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours – is the use of the existing YouTube social graph on any subject in the World. Now, news is reported with a smartphone and also by promoting current content on YouTube: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, or having a camera crew to shoot what is already on YouTube. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
