    The search for the UP Aerospace payload of experiments and the cremated remains of some 200 people — including Scotty of "Star Trek" fame as well as pioneering NASA Mercury astronaut Gordon Cooper — continues within New Mexico's rugged mountain landscape.

    After a successful blastoff from New Mexico's Spaceport America on April 28, the UP Aerospace SpaceLoft XL rocket and its payload nosed into space on a suborbital trajectory. As part of launch operations, the rocket was tracked by specialists at the neighboring White Sands Missile Range.

    While all went well with the flight, the rocket components parachuted into rough-and-tumble terrain. Repeated searches within the landing zone have come up empty.


    William Shatner expressed very mild displeasure when contacted and asked for a comment on this news:

    Wonderful thread title.

    That should be a new category for the SJ awards.

    Yeah, until someone posts this story tomorrow and then claims this thread title was misleading. :D

    I was going to just post "KHAAAAAAAN!!!" as the title. I added the rest right before I clicked "send," figuring it would go over a lot of heads if I didn't.

    That screaming line, and Shatner's expression (looks like he was in the middle of a corn-heavy dump at the time) are classic in movie legend.

    Dr. Clyde Tombaugh, discoverer of the now non-planet Pluto, had some of his ashes shot toward Mars last year. Our paper's headline?:

    A little bit of Clyde goes a long way

    ST II: WOK is my wife's all-time fav movie.
    I can't figure it out either.
    One of the reasons why I love her.
