Majel & Gene in space forever

IO9 is listing an article reporting that Majel's ashes will join her husband Gene Roddenberry ashes in space aboard a Celestis Inc rocket. A launch date has not been set as of yet. I am wondering if they are still trying to figure out what happened when Celestis tried to launch James "Scotty" Doohan's ashes into orbit last year, yes the operative word here is tried.

Possible technical hiccups aside, I can't think of a more appropriate send-off :-)

You know that was my thought as well. Some are saying that it's all hype, but I think its a pretty cool sendoff. Just as long as they dont plow another furrow in the desert.
