I guess you go to the United Arab Emerite spaceport to scatter granny’s ahses.

Space ashes for the masses

The planned launch sometime in March of a rocket carrying the ashes of actor James Doohan, who played chief engineer Montgomery Scott on “Star Trek,” and Mercury program astronaut Gordon Cooper will give a fitting send-off to two men who helped popularize human space exploration.

The craft also will hold the ashes of 185 others, including a telephone technician, a nurse and a college student.

Ha! Beam me up indeed!
