To Go Boldly

In October, the remains of Jimmy Doohan (Star Trek's Scotty) will be sent into space -- with those of 100 other people (how weird is that!) -- for a brief trip. Then later in the year, his ashes will join Gene Rodenberry's as more space junk -- which ultimately will fall back to earth. Just think, you could be lucky enough to have what's left of Scotty land in your back yard (or slam through your roof) -- assuming the capsule doesn't disintegrate on re-entry)! It makes me think of the days when my sister wouldn't let my nephew play outside because she was sure Skylab was going to land on him.

Have a safe trip, Scotty!
