She has reached heights most people can only dream of, but Wally Funk wasn’t totally sold on her trip up to the stars.

The 82-year-old accompanied billionaire Jeff Bezos on Tuesday’s Blue Origin mission and, in so doing, officially became the oldest person to travel into space.

Speaking at a post-flight press conference, she implied that she and her three fellow crew mates didn’t quite travel high enough or spend long enough in zero gravity for her liking.

“We went right on up and I saw darkness. I thought I was going to see the world, but we weren’t quite high enough,” the former NASA trainee reportedly admitted.

I Call True: An amazing achievement but you can understand her disappointment, the dream would always be to see the earth rather than just darkness
