    I think it would be cool if he brought Nimoy's urn (properly sealed) with him. It would be a nice gesture, since he missed the funeral. Just sayin...

    As a Jew, Nimoy was buried not cremated. There is no urn to bring to space. His body was buried in a cemetery in LA.

    Cremation isn't as uncommon as it used to be for Jews. My grandfather was cremated and no one, not even the rabbi who officiated, batted an eye. I believe my grandmother has stated she wishes the same when the time comes.

    But it's true Nimoy was not, and the world isn't prepared for the utter awesomeness which would be "Weekend at Bernies - in Space" staring William Shatner and the late Leonard Nimoy. Even though, given that Shatner himself is Jewish, Mel Brooks has already composed the perfect title sequence.
