Gene Roddenberry, wife to spend eternity in space

Jan 26, 10:04 PM (ET)

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The creator of "Star Trek" and his wife will spend eternity together in space. Celestis Inc., a company that specializes in "memorial spaceflights," said Monday that it will ship the remains of Gene Roddenberry and Majel Barrett Roddenberry into space next year.

The couple's cremated remains will be sealed into specially made capsules designed to withstand the rigors of space travel. A rocket-launched spacecraft will carry the capsules, along with digitized tributes from fans.

The Roddenberrys' remains - and the spacecraft - will travel ever deeper into space and will not return to earth, company spokeswoman Susan Schonfeld said.

After Gene Roddenberry died in 1991, his wife commissioned Celestis to launch a part of his remains into space in 1997. She died Dec. 18, 2008.





I'm also going to post this at 3DG and TOK.

I didn't realize Majel had passed away. But it's very fitting that the two of them will be together in space.

Gene Roddenberry will decay and fall out of orbit within a couple hundred years.

Just so you know....................

I think they'd be satisfied with a couple hundred years.
