James Doohan's ashes are missing somewhere in New Mexico. The mortal remains of the man who played Montgomery Scott, or 'Scotty,' on Star Trek, were blasted into space in a suborbital rocket as part of a service that, well, blasts people's ashes into space, but only for a short time. Don't ask us, we're not sure why anyone would do it, either.
Still, the rocket containing the ashes was lost upon re-entry, and is presumed missing someplace in New Mexico, in an area that's reportedly difficult for the recovery team to reach. So, Doohan's ashes, as well as the ashes of some 300 other people, who each paid $495 to have themselves shot into space, will just have to wait a while.
