Four Minutes at the Edge of Space

Many people want to have their ashes shot into space after their deaths.  James Doohan, better know as Scotty on Star Trek did.

In Aye, Aye Sir, I posted how he wanted to be beamed up to the final frontier.  And so he was.

But only for four minutes at the edge of space when the rocket which propelled his ashes and those of 200 others fell back to earth in New Mexico.

Wende Doohan, James Doohan's widow, told the Associated Press news agency her late husband "probably wished he could have stayed".
