Scotty's remains were beamed away as soon as they reached orbit. There was too much interference on the Earth's surface for the relatively primitive transporters that were used by the Aldebaran's to get a good lock on him, or else his entire body would have disappeared shortly after his death.
I read this story and I was confused. when I initially heard about this type of funeral service (or whatever you want to call) I thought that they took your ashes, and launched them into space, either to stay in orbit for a long time or just float away. If you read the article, for $495, they will launch a portion of your ashes into suborbital space then the rocket (and your ashes) return to earth. Seems a little bit of a ripoff to me
That was what I thought, also. If I send my ashes into space I want them to stay there, don't bring them back.
