For 12 years on the International Space Station (ISS), the ashes of James Doohan, who played Scotty in the movie “Star Trek”, were on the quiet.
According to the present edition of The Times, since 2008, the ashes of James Doohan have flown more than 70 thousand one around the Earth.
For 12 years, only a few people have informed that the remains of the Star Trek are hidden on the ISS.
The artist’s relatives asked the businessman and demiurge of the Ultima game Richard Garriott to deliver the ashes of the performer of the role of Scotty, which was laminated into his photograph.
The entrepreneur complied with their request and during his trip as a space tourist to the station in 2008, he carried a picture with Dukhan’s ashes and hid it under the inner cover of the Columbus module. Fearing a fine, Garriott asked the artist’s relatives to keep it a secret.
James Doohan’s son Chris said that his parent had three passions in life: space, science and trains, and the actor has dreamed of going into space for a century. Chris noted that thanks to Garriott, his parent was able to “fulfill” the dream. He thanked the businessman, 360 TV channel reports.
