New Memorial Spaceflight
Offered by Orbital Memorials
One of the most innovative and cutting-edge memorial technology tools is a memorial spaceflight. Memorial spaceflights provide the opportunity for your loved one to experience space and be forever immortalized above earth, on the moon, or in deep space.
In the case of an orbital memorial package, your loved one’s cremated remains will orbit the earth from 3 weeks to 2 months, before its orbit naturally begins to reenter the atmosphere. This occurs at very high speeds and temperatures causing the satellite and its contents to become a trail of ionized gas, also known as a shooting star.
Benefits of Spaceflight
- Visit the final frontier: your loved one can visit a realm visited by few, and dreamed of by many.
- Shooting star: your loved one will be immortalized upon reentry into earth’s atmosphere in a shooting-star like blaze of glory.
- As cremations are becoming more popular, there are a growing number of ways to memorialize your loved one. Spaceflight allows sending only a portion of ashes, leaving the remainder for you to keep.
- Spaceflight is possible whether your loved one has recently passed, or if their remains have been preserved.
