Netizens addressed a terrifying moment after landing when William Shatner got emotional sharing his experience and Jeff Bezos cut him off in the middle of his speech
When Willliam Shatner aka Captain Kirk shot into space in Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin rocket, fans praised the actor for becoming the oldest person in space at the age of 90. The unprecedented trip on the rocket called New Shepard took place at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time Wednesday, October 13th. The flight was broadcast live on Blue Origin’s YouTube channel. Social media detectives broached the subject a moment after landing when William Shatner got a little emotional and shared his deep space experience and Jeff Bezos cut him off in the middle of the speech to pop the champagne.
Over a period of around 10 minutes, William Shatner and his crew members took off on a hydrogen-powered rocket, climbed more than 100 kilometers to the edge of space and enjoyed three to four minutes of weightlessness before landing with a soft parachute. “It was so moving for me. This experience is incredible, ”said Shatner after landing. He added that Jeff Bezos gave him the most profound experience he could imagine. “I’m so touched by what just happened … it’s extraordinary,” he said.
‘Massively uncomfortable moment there …’
This was Blue Origin’s second trip into space. When Blue Origin first flew into space on July 20, Wally Funk was the oldest person in space at the age of 82, accompanied by Jeff Bezos himself and his brother Mark. Before starting, Shatner said, “I want to see space, I want to see the earth, I want to see what we have to do to save the earth. I want to have a perspective that I’ve never been shown before. That’s what interests me. “
