CelebnMusic247.com reports that William Shatner is one of the first celebrities to travel to space.

On Wednesday, Blue Origin Vice President of New Shepard Mission and Flight Operations Audrey Powers as well as Dr. Chris Boshuizen and Glen de Vries as they blasted off on the aerospace company’s latest suborbital spaceflight on Wednesday. The successful mission makes Shatner the oldest person to travel to space.

The former “Star Trek” actor spoke on the “Today” show Thursday where he explained how the simulations for the flight didn’t necessarily prepare him for the immensely moving and physically taxing experience.

He explained to the hosts:

We had a simulator, they simulate what they say you’re going to feel and it doesn’t come anywhere near it. [They say] ‘Here you’re going to be in weightlessness and you’ve got to grab a hold of something, don’t push too hard with your hands, just use your fingertips because you’ll bounce off the ceiling…’ You can talk about weightlessness all you want but the feeling of weightlessness, the actual feeling of weightlessness is indescribable!

Shatner added that he was worried while blasting to the stars asking himself, “At 5 Gs, you’re pressed, the skin is going back and you’re thinking ‘Can I endure this? When will this end?”

He adds:

First of all, your body doesn’t have any pressure, so suddenly your body is expanding. Secondly, you’re floating and I don’t want to turn somersaults, I don’t want to throw Skittles, I want to look out the window!

He assures everyone:

But it’s over in a moment because you hit this edge of air that’s around us. This 50-mile skin of air that causes the blue sky.
