We've had a number of post about private space travel recently. Here's the story of a private rocket shot off over the weekend that's disappeared just a couple minutes after launch. Where did it go? If it was one of those model rockets I shot off when I was a kid, it would be wedged between some tree branches.

That rocket had the ashes of James Doohan, "Scotty" from Star Trek and 207 other people who had paid to have their ashes shot into space.
