Earth Orbit Service
Our Earth Orbit service affordably launches a symbolic
portion of cremated remains into space aboard Celestis
spacecraft. Your loved one will venture into the final
frontier as part of a real space mission, riding alongside
a commercial or scientific satellite.
The Celestis spacecraft is placed in Earth orbit where it remains until it reenters the atmosphere, harmlessly vaporizing like a shooting star in final tribute.
The length of time the spacecraft remains in orbit depends on a variety of factors: orbital altitude, the shape of the spacecraft, etc. Previous Celestis missions are estimated to remain in Earth orbit between 10 years to 240 years. Specific launch information is provided to you after the launch occurs and the spacecraft completes one successful orbit. Our next Earth Orbit mission is scheduled to occur in Q4 2014.
