Scotty Launched into Space.

James Doohan, who portrayed Scotty in the original Star Trek series and several movies, has finally reached outer space. Doohen died in 2005. Part of his ashes, along with those of Mercury astronaut Gordon Cooper and 200 other people, were launched by a private SpaceLoft XL rocket August 28 from a site in New Mexico. After reaching an altitude of 70 miles, the rocket split and the capsules holding remains returned to earth via parachute. Link
