Actor William Shatner, who became the oldest person to travel to space at age 90, told Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos that his spaceflight was “unbelievable.”

“Everybody in this world needs to do this,” Shatner said after landing back on Earth and exiting the capsule.
“To see the blue color whip by you, and now you’re staring into blackness, that’s the thing,” he said.

He called the sky a “comforter of blue that we have around us.”

“You look down, there’s the blue down there and the black up there … there is Mother Earth and comfort, and there is, is there death? I don’t know, but is that death? Is that the way death is? … It was so moving; this experience, it was something unbelievable,” he said while the crew celebrated behind him.

The Morning Show with Nikki Medoro welcomes ABC News Correspondent Jim Ryan to talk about Shatner’s milestone going into space today. Plus, actor Dean Cain says the new bisexual Superman is not “brave”, it’s just jumping on the politically correct bandwagon.
