In the latest space launch, the SpaceX Dragon rocket was launched this weekend, carrying the ashes of dearly departed James Doohan, better known to us all as Scotty – beleaguered 1st Engineer of the U.S.S. Enterprise. It’s the first time a private rocket has launched to dock with the International Space Station, and definitely the first time Scotty has been in space.
Let’s hope there were no ‘She cannae take any more’ moments along the way. Details in the link above.
