Have a asteroid orbiting the moon close to the ground (couple thousand feet at most) and through the convicts skyward when it will be passing over head, WHAM, asteroid collides with the convict at ~6,000 kilometers per hour. No clean up, and you could sell tapes to sickos for money!

Of course, this would only be practical for a lunar base - it's expensive (currently at least) to send people to the moon.

       Many years ago, my dear old Dad said to me words which have stayed with me all my life. As we sat on a stony beach, our faces chapped by the bracing sea air, me perched on his corduroy-clad knee, he ruffled my hair and said, "Son, if you're going to have some sort of state sanctioned execution of criminals (and I'm not suggesting for a moment that you should) then you should make the method of execution be as ludicrously convoluted as possible. It's better that way."
Then he sighed heavily, we stood up and went to drop rocks on crabs.

       Warden: "Son, it looks like the Governor gave you a temporary stay of execution... you've got one more orbit to live."
