[Picture LINK]SpaceX’s Dragon mission markes the first time a private company has sent a space vehicle to the ISS, but it will not be the last. The spacecraft is carrying station supplies this time, but future flights will be manned. Musk said this morning that the spacecraft can comfortably seat seven astronauts.
Musk, though, had been cagey about the almost mythical Star Trek-inspired cargo. However, when Mashable asked if “Scotty’s” remains were on board, Musk quickly replied, “We are carrying the ashes of several people and I am told Scotty is in there.” Musk did not offer any details about the identities of the other remains.
