William Shatner on his voyage to the edge of space

Techstination feature for Wednesday, October 20, 2021

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        Actor William Shatner…best known for his role as Star Trek’s Captain Kirk…has become the oldest person to travel into space…or the edge of it, aboard a Blue Origin rocket.   While there’s controversy about space tourism…the price tag and environmental impact…Shatner, upon landing, told Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos…

“What you have given me is the most profound experience I can imagine.  I’m so filled with emotion about what just happened.   It’s extraordinary.   Extraordinary.  I hope I never recover from this.  I hope that I can maintain what I feel now.   I don’t want to lose it.”

Shatner went on to say the experience is something he wishes everyone on the planet could have…if not for real.. perhaps virtually.
