William Shatner Reflects On Trip To Space: We're So Vulnerable, "It's So Small"

|

"Star Trek" star William Shatner reflects on a brief trip to the upper atmosphere aboard the Jeff Bezos "Blue Origin" rocket ship.

"What you have given me is the most profound experience," Shatner told Bezos. "I hope I never recover from this. I hope that I can maintain what I feel now. I don’t want to lose it."

"Everybody in the world needs to do this. Everybody needs to see. It was unbelievable."


"There is mother Earth and comfort, and then, is that the way death is?"

"The vulnerability of everything. It's so small. This air that is keeping us alive is thinner than your skin. It is a sliver. It is immeasurably small when you think in terms of the universe," Shatner said.

"It's so thin! To—to—to dirty it—I mean, that's another whole subject," he said.



About looking up, he said: "In an instant you go, whoa, that’s death. That’s what I saw."
