Lost Their Ashes

Memorial of St. Scholastica

The search continues in New Mexico's mountains for the payload carrying experiments and the cremated remains of James Doohan, who played Star Trek's "Scotty," NASA Mercury and Gemini astronaut Gordon Cooper, and approximately 200 other people. The suborbital "Legacy" space flight of a UP Aerospace Spaceloft XL rocket launched April 28 from Spaceport America, 30 miles east of Truth or Consequences, NM.

I will limit myself to two questions:
  1. Did they check whether it might be suspended in molecular limbo by a loop in the transporter system?
  2. Does this really constitute treating the bodies of the dead with respect and charity?
