"Beam me up, Scotty"

MSNBC reports that "Star Trek" actor James "Scotty" Doohan took the catchphrase "beam me up" very seriously. In accord with his last wishes, his cremated remains are being launched into space.

Space Services Inc., a commercial launch operator, is due to send the late actor’s remains into space aboard its Explorers Flight. His ashes will be ejected from the spacecraft and orbit the earth for a century or two before descending into the atmosphere and burning up.
