In any ironic twist, the CEO of the private company that launched the rocket (it was intentially a low orbit, the payloads were designed to come back) said that the "nailed" the landing. What a crock.

This raises an interesting thought; how would you choose to be disposed off when you die?
I want my body fed to some animals in the zoo so for once I don't feel like I was a waste or something. What's your take?

I want my remains to be mixed in with some synthetic fibers somehow, and woven into a giant fishnet bodysuit worn by either Jenna Jameson, or her age-suspended clone.

Torch me and dump the ashes.

Preferably over the Rockies, but I won't be terribly concerned at that point.
