Final Frontier Postponed For Scotty
Plans to rocket late Star Trek actor James Doohan's ashes into space have been put on hold after a similar spacecraft developed a fuel leak and crashed into the Pacific Ocean. Doohan, who played engineer SCOTTY in the cult sci-fi TV show, requested that his ashes be sent into the cosmos. Now private consortium Space X are set to send Doohan's remains into the galaxy on Falcon 2 - after they have figured out how to prevent another disastrous crash. Consortium leader ELON MUSK says, "At least we had a successful lift-off and Falcon made it well clear of the lift-off."
