Countdown to Launch
Celestis is pleased to announce that our annual Earth Rise Flight
is scheduled for launch on June 21, 2013.
This is our fifth Earth Rise
mission and twelfth overall memorial spaceflight. We will once
again launch aboard an UP
Aerospace SpaceLoft XL launch vehicle from Spaceport
America, New Mexico. The Centennial Flight is named
in honor of the 100th anniversary of New Mexico's statehood.
With The Centennial Flight:
- Your loved one's dream of spaceflight is fulfilled as we launch
a symbolic portion of your loved one's cremated remains into space.
The cremated remains then return to Earth and are recovered.
- You receive the flown space capsule or module -- with the cremated
remains still inside -- as a keepsake.
- You are invited to participate in our launch-related events
at Spaceport America. We normally take a tour of mission control
and the launch pad, view the rocket, hold a pre-launch briefing,
conduct a non-sectarian memorial service for all of those on board
the mission, and witness the launch.
- You receive a video of the launch and related activities, as
well as a Launch Certificate.
- Your loved one is memorialized on our website with a biography
and photo that remain on our site in perpetuity.
In addition to our launch-related activities, the Spaceport America
area offers a number of interesting tourist attractions. Please
