Bezos’ Blue Origin Set to Send Shatner to Final Frontier

Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin is expected to send the actor William Shatner and three others to the edge of space Wednesday, the latest flight aimed at establishing the fledgling space-tourism market.

Blue Origin is conducting the flight as aviation regulators assess recent allegations made in a letter signed by a former employee that the company hasn’t always made safety a priority. The company has said it stands by its safety record and is scheduled at 10 a.m. ET Wednesday to take its latest group of private astronauts up.
