William Shatner, the well-known fictional spaceman, Has Officially Goes To Space For Real

William Shatner has officially gone where no TV actor has gone before: outer space. After a series of delays and increasing worries about his age, Shaun has finally returned to the screen. The iconic actor, best known as Star Treks Captain Kirk, left the Earth on Wednesday morning aboard Jeff Bezos Blue Origin capsule, which launched its second launch. Shatner was back on solid ground, where he was visibly emotional from the once-in-a-lifetime experience, moments after the event.

Shatner was greeted by Bezos as he left the capsule with his fellow astronauts and spoke to the astronaut about the space flight.

Im so full of emotion about what just happened. Its extraordinary, extraordinary. I hope to maintain what I feel now. I dont want to lose it. Shatner told Bezos via CNN that Its so much bigger than me and my life. What you have given me is the most profound experience I can imagine. It has nothing to do with the little green men and the blue orb. It has to do with the enormity, the rapidity and the suddenness of life and death.

Shatner continued to expound on the experience to Bezos, who wanted to know every word of it as the crew celebrated around them. Clearly moved by the vastness of space, Shacner spoke freely to the president about the event, which he said wanted every detail.

Look down, theres the blue down there and the black up there... there is Mother Earth and comfort, and there's, is there death? I dont know, but is that death? Is that the way death is? Shatner explained. It was so moving; this experience, it was something incredible.
