In life, James Doohan was the "Star Trek" engineer who worked miracles on the Enterprise, but a rocket meant to blast his remains into space has engine trouble.
A Falcon One rocket was to lift the ashes of Doohan, who played engineer Montgomery "Scotty" Scott aboard the fictional Starship Enterprise, into space next month but the launch has been delayed at least until February, organizers said Tuesday. (link)
Ironic to say the least. I have to say though that I want to get my own keister up there with a beating heart and not as some cremated dust pile. Though I guess the thought is a nice one to do for the Scotty/Doohan.
Little depressed 'cuz it seems like the much heavily hyped first Falcon launch is once again delayed. Jon Goff has something to say about it.
