“I am so moved by what just happened. It is extraordinary.”
He’s done exploring the cosmos. William shatner is back on Earth and the least we can say is that this first space adventure touched him deeply.
The ex-star Star Trek boarded Blue Origin’s New Shepard NS-18 yesterday for a 10-minute flight into the stars. At 90, he became the oldest person to ever fly in space. It climbed 105 kilometers above sea level, at a speed close to 3600 km / h. And just like in the cult series, all’s well that ends well, as Blue Origin has brought back the crew capsule safe and sound.
“Everyone in the world has to do it“, commented William shatner, euphoric, after coming out of the capsule and filmed by CNN. His voice broken with emotion, he confessed: “It was just amazing. Unbelievable“Thanking Jeff Bezos, founder of Blue Origin, for gifting him the ticket, Shatner seemed overwhelmed by the experience:”What you have given me is the most profound experience I can imagine. I am so filled with emotion. I hope I never get over it. What I feel now is so… so much larger than life. “
