William Shatner Calls Out Prince William for Dissing Space Exploration

After taking a trip to space, "Star Trek" actor William Shatner is lamenting the short-sightedness of Prince William's space science denial to focus on "trying to repair this planet."

"He's got the wrong idea," Shatner, 90, told Entertainment Tonight. "The idea here is not to go, 'Yeah, look at me. I'm in space.' No.

"I would tell the prince, and I hope the prince gets the message, this is a baby step into the idea of getting industry, all those polluting industries, off of Earth," he continued.

"You can build a base 250, 280 miles above the Earth and send that power down here, and they catch it, and they then use it, and it's there," he added.

Shatner said "somebody as rich as Jeff Bezos" needs to say, "Let's go up there," in order to help the Earth by exploring alternatives in space.

Prince William, 39, had been politicking for climate change while denying science of space exploration to BBC.

"We need some of the world's greatest brains and minds fixed on trying to repair this planet, not trying to find the next place to go and live," William said.

"It really is quite crucial to be focusing on this [planet] rather than giving up and heading out into space to try and think of solutions for the future," he added.

Shatner told ET, scientists are actually smart and can "curl your hair and put lotion on your face at the same time."

"The prince is missing the point," Shatner added. "The point is these are the baby steps to show people it's very practical. You can send somebody like me up into space."

Shatner supported the science that space exploration is "critical" to understanding Earth, human existence, and survival.
