Space Memorials

Space Services Inc. offers unique way to honor memory of loved ones by sending their ashes into space.

A symbolic portion of cremated remains is placed into Earth orbit as part of a real space mission, riding alongside a commercial or scientific satellite. A portion of cremated remains is placed inside a permanently sealed, individual flight container, loaded into the spacecraft and attached to the launch vehicle.

On launch day, families can gather at the liftoff site to share the experience of seeing their loved ones’ dreams of spaceflight realized.
