William Shatner pretended to be in space for many years on Star Trek and now he is finally getting his opportunity! The 90-year-old has been training to go on a special mission to space. He recently opened up in an interview on the things he’s excited and nervous about when leaving Earth.

William said he can’t wait to go and see space for himself but he hopes he doesn’t see anything else out there! He joked, “I want to press my nose up against the plastic window. What I don’t want to see is somebody else out there looking back at me.”

Even with jokes, he is taking the training seriously and said he’s been running a lot to get in better shape. He also called it a “miracle” to be able to go into space in a statement during the announcement. William is set to go to space on Oct. 12, 2021.
