Star Trek star and veteran Canadian actor William Shatner returned from space on Wednesday with three others on Blue Origin’s New Shepard rocket, describing his experience as “indescribable”.
At 90, Shatner is the oldest person to go to space.
He was next to exit the capsule and described his experience to Amazon/Blue Origin billionaire founder, Jeff Bezos.
“It’s indescribable,” he said.
“I’m so filled with emotion with what just happened,” Shatner said to Bezos on the ground, breaking into tears. “I hope I never recover from this,” he added.
After celebrations around the capsule, the crew lined up to get custom astronaut pins from Blue Origin. Bezos fastened the pins to each passenger. “OK, guys, we have four astronauts before you,” he said.
