If you have a chance to watch his full discussion with Bezos and how incredibly overwhelmed and shaken he is from what he experienced. It's so beautiful.
Shatner's overwhelmed... spoilers
When everyone left the capsule, they were cheering, celebrating, shaking champagne and spraying all over as Shatner was off to one side... quiet.
At first when he got out of the capsule, he just stood there and didn't talk to anyone until Bezos walked up to him. He was at times in tears at seeing life (the Earth) and death (blackness of space). His struggle to describe what he felt is more than I thought he'd feel. I'm so grateful and moved by how much this means to him and how he now understands the beauty of Earth. He said, "I hope I never recover from this." So profound, and so passionate about life and the blue sliver of air around our planet.
I couldn't look away from him. He's amazing. I'm so proud of him... and so happy for him...
We have been there and back again.
