Scotty, finally, gets beamed up
This one is kind of nice:
The ashes of Star Trek actor James Doohan have been successfully launched into space from a site in New Mexico, watched by cheering fans.
Part of the remains of the actor, who played Montgomery "Scotty" Scott, were sent about 70 miles above the earth on a private SpaceLoft XL rocket.
His widow Wende helped "press the button" for her husband's final voyage.
Doohan's ashes were accompanied by the remains of former US astronaut Gordon Cooper and those of 200 other people.
Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry's remains were fired into space in 1997, six years after his death.
