Doohan Trekking To Space
The remains of actor James Doohan, who played the starship Enterprise's chief engineer Montgomery "Scotty" Scott on Star Trek, will be blasted into space this month, the company organizing the flight told the Reuters news service. The Canadian-born actor died two years ago at the age of 85.For the record, this is what I want when I go.
The Houston-based commercial company Space Services Inc. told Reuters that some of Doohan's remains were packed into a rocket at Las Cruces, New Mexico, on March 30, 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.
