Scotty Lost in Space
Scotty's desire to be blasted in to space when he couldn't be beamed up any more has come to a crashing halt.
His family are frustrated in the delay in bringing to closure his funeral. "Longer than Lenins", one said.
I am all for scattering ashes in favourite places, even scattering out of planes, but blasting into space seems a bit much and prone to disaster. Not knowing where your relatives remains were would be a bit odd. Elizabeth's dads and those of his parents are in our shed waiting for a better spot. At least we know where they are.
I doubt it will be Mars.
That reminded me of a lame Star Trek joke. How many ears does Captain Kirk have? Four - a Left, a Right, a Wild Front and a Scottish Engine
SpaceX will just have to try harder next time and take on board some of this optimism.
