I’m happy to note that the cremated remains of NASA hero Gordon Cooper and Star Trek actor James Doohan, accidentally jettisoned from a rocket, have been located, along with those of 200 others, in rugged mountain terrain in New Mexico. UP Aerospace, which conducted the flight that originally carried the cargo destined to orbit the earth, announced today that the remains have been found in good condition. Although the search took several days, the company said it had been certain of the precious payload’s location since yesterday, but needed to wait until the weather cleared to recover it.
So, here’s to ya, Gordo and Scotty. May the next attempt be entirely successful, and may you find eternal peace in the skies above us.
