William Shatner says space was ‘unlike anything I’ve ever seen’

By FOXBusiness

William Shatner said space was “unlike anything they described” and “unlike anything I’ve ever seen” following the success of Blue Origin’s NS-18 mission on Wednesday.

“What you have given me is the most profound experience,” the 90-year-old actor, best known for his portrayal as Captain James T. Kirk on “Star Trek,” told Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos moments after exiting New Shepard’s capsule. “I’m so filled with emotion about what just happened. I just I hope I never recover from this. I hope that I can maintain what I feel now — I don’t want to lose it. It’s so much larger than me and life…It has to do with the enormity and the quickness and the suddenness of life and death.”

“Everybody in the world needs to do this,” he added. “It was so moving.”
