Beam me up Scotty

This time it's Scotty who is beaming up. Montgomery "Scotty" Scott was a character played by James Doohan in the original Star Trek series. A lipstick size container with his cremated remains along with 307 others will be on board the SpaceX--a privately owned rocket that will be delivering supplies to the International Space Station. The remains are located in the rocket's second stage which will separate 9 minutes and 49 seconds after take-off. It will orbit the earth for about a year; then be brought back in the atmosphere and be incinerated. Scotty's final flight
