    What goes up must come down.  In this case, Doohan's ashes went up suborbital on a rocket and landed somewhere in New Mexico.  Teams are searching.

    That's terrible... I hope they find them and try again.

    I've heard they only go up 75 miles, and you have to go above 100 to be considered in space (the shuttle goes 250, and satellites are 23,000).
