William Shatner retaliates as Prince William
STAR Trek’s William Shatner hit back after Prince William criticized “space tourism” after the actor’s flight to the edge of space.
The 90-year-old became the oldest astronaut ever on October 13 – on the same day the Duke of Cambridge urged “the greatest brains in the world” to focus on “repairing this planet, without trying to find the next place to go to live “.
But Captain Kirk Shatner actor said today the Duke had “a bad idea” and that his trip was actually the first of many “baby steps” to help keep polluters away from Earth.
He told Entertainment Tonight: “He is a lovely Englishman. He will one day be King of England. He is a lovely, gentle and educated man, but he has a bad idea.”
Instead of finding an alternate home for humans, Shatner said his space trip was actually to protect planet Earth.
“The idea here is not to say ‘Yeah, look at me. I’m in space,'” he said.
“The landing that consumed all that energy and the people that took a look and were like, ‘Oh, look at this.’ No. I hope the prince gets the message, it’s a small step in bringing the industry up there, so that all these polluting industries, especially, for example, industries that manufacture of electricity, come out of the Earth. “
