Star Trek's William Shatner on "unbelievable" experience in Space – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

William Shatner, best known for his role as Captain Kirk in Star Trek, has become the oldest person to go to space, at the age of 90.

His trip on the rocket system – developed by Amazon[.]com founder Jeff Bezos – lasted about 10 minutes.

The actor, and three others who were aboard, got to experience a short period of weightlessness and see the curvature of the Earth through the capsule’s big windows.

When he landed back on Earth in the Texas desert William Shatner told Mr Bezos “Everybody in the world needs to do this… It was unbelievable”.

Its really not a big thing i think. Its like walking 5 feet past the welcome to New York City and say ive been to New Your City. The more people who goes into space this the less important it be

Can't you just filter out those idiots behind!?? Holy moly William Shatner is trying to communicate his thoughts and the fact that those behind continue yelling, cheering and celebrating like instagrammers make him hard to listen.

Captain Kirk is attempting to describe to Bezos what he saw………

Bezos: 🍾 here STFU while I spray champagne in your face!
What a fuck weasel! He has no clue how to behave around others.

We all should have dressed up as apes when he landed, just to freak him out.
