Doohan, Cooper found at last
The ashes of astronaut Gordon Cooper and Star Trek actor James "Scotty" Doohan were recovered today in New Mexico in the designated recovery zone, 20 days after they were shot into space for their brief post-mortum flight. Generally speaking, UP Aerospace of Connecticut doesn’t have such a hard time finding the payload, but, generally speaking, the payload is rarely this ironic. It’s not quite like losing the car keys.
Nonetheless, it’s good to have these two heroes back on Earth.
