Ashes, Space, and Star Trek

My electrical engineering husband and our oldest child, who is not quite 4, are huge fans for all things related to space.  Included in that fascination is the Star Trek series as well as the recent launch by SpaceX.  To my surprise, their interest intersected with my career focus.  SpaceX, the first private company to deliver supplies to the International Space Station also carried the cremains of 300 people into space.  Included were those of James Doohan, who played Scotty in the original series.

Sound appealing?  If so, make sure you take the proper steps to ensure your final wishes are carried out.  In Wisconsin that involves completing the form: Authorization for Final Disposition, which appoints a person as well as a back up to make your burial arrangements.  If that should include a space flight, be certain to complete the form.
