Star Trek's Scotty is beamed up

The ashes of James Doohan, better known as 'Scotty' from 'Star Trek' are launched into space on a rocket. Actor James Doohan, who played the starship Enterprise's chief engineer Scotty on "Star Trek," finally made it to space on Saturday (April 28), on board a rocket containing some of his ashes. Remains of the Canadian-born actor, who died two years ago at the age of 85, hurtled to the edge of space aboard a telephone pole-size rocket that blasted off from a desert launching ground in New Mexico.
