World in Brief: William Shatner, TV’s Capt. Kirk, blasts into space

William Shatner describes what the g-forces of the Blue Origin lift off did to his face as Chris Boshuizen, left, and Glen de Vries look on during a media availability at the spaceport near Van Horn, Texas, Wednesday, Oct. 13, 2021. The “Star Trek” actor and three fellow passengers hurtled to an altitude of 66.5 miles over the West Texas desert in the fully automated capsule, then safely parachuted back to Earth in a flight that lasted just over 10 minutes.
