Ashes to space


So, here is a rather cool concept: imagine when loved ones pass away, instead of burying them, we send their ashes to space. A recent startup is exactly doing just that. They are making the idea of letting the loved ones becoming that star in the galaxy into a reality. Elysium Space, is a San Francisco company which provide such space memorial services. It is launching it’s business in Japan. Previously, it was reported that they started off in US just months back. For as low as $1990, you can send the ashes of the deceased family member. With plans to having their own spacecraft, ex-NASA engineer as well as founder, CEO Thomas Civeit says it would definitely help them in their operations. As of now, they are currently working together with space transport companies like Space X and sending the ashes from a launch of their spacecraft in Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

There are many options for rocket launch sites but they are typically surrounded by off-limits areas. For our customers who are willing to watch the launch scene, I believe Florida is the best of them.

Disney World is located nearby, where you can visit with your family members after watching the launch. It may be possible to partner with travel agencies to arrange a tour having those destinations.
