Tom Hanks says he was offered William Shatner’s space flight first but refused to pay $28m

The Independent says Tom Hanks has claimed that he was offered William Shatner’s flight into space first, but was unwilling to pay a $28m (£20.5m) fee for it.

Shatner was launched into space last month as part of a scheme masterminded by Amazon boss Jeff Bezos. The 90-year-old Star Trek star became the oldest person to have travelled into space.

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night (2 November), Hanks discussed his own flirtation with space travel.
