James Doohan (March 3, 1920 – July 20, 2005) played the very famous Scotty in Star Trek: the Original Series. Since today, he is really in outer space. His ashes were sent into space today (April 28, 2007), at his own request. The ashes, along with those of Mercury astronaut Gordon Cooper as well as 200 others, were launched on the SpaceLoft XL rocket. Have a good flight, dear Scotty.
