an interesting tidbit

Mar 31 | The remains of actor James Doohan will be blasted into space next month, the company organizing the flight said on Friday. Houston-based commercial company Space Services Inc. said some of Doohan’s remains were packed into a rocket at Las Cruces, New Mexico, on Friday, ahead of the flight scheduled for April 28. The company had originally planned to blast Doohan’s remains into space two years ago. But the flight was delayed by tests, then by a misfire during a practice launch last year. Space Services spokeswoman Susan Schonfeld said Doohan’s ashes will be sent up along with the remains of some 200 other people, including astronaut Gordon Cooper, who first went into space in 1963.
