Actor James Doohan, who was best known for playing Scotty on Star Trek, was granted his wish of having his ashes sent to space on Tuesday.

The actor died in 2005 at age 85.

However, an attempt to send his ashes into space proved unsuccessful in 2008.

Happily, Doohan and over 300 other deceased individuals had their cremated remains sent into orbit thanks to SpaceX’s unmanned Falcon 9 rocket, which launced from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

Other people whose ashes were sent to the stars include Gordon Cooper, who was one of the Mercury seven astronauts. He died in 2004.

Over 200 of those people, like Doohan, had previously unsuccessful attempts to get their ashes into space, which was mainly due to technical difficulties.
