Whether your loved one was a Star Trek fan, science fiction buff or just always wanted a ride in a rocket, we can help.
With modern technology, launching ashes by rocket is within the reach of everyone’s budget. Ashes are dispersed over a wide area with the prevailing winds from a great height. The payload, carefully wrapped in a silk carrier can be just a few grams or the entire contents of the urn. Dispersal a mile high or higher is no problem, depending on launch site. Launches can be held in the day or at night.
Gene Roddenberry, creator of Star Trek, was one of the first people to have their ashes carried into space. A portion James Doohan’s ashes, AKA Scotty in many Star Trek episodes, have also left Earth.
NASA’s launched samples of ashes to the moon and even on a mission past the planet Pluto. Clyde Tombaugh ashes, the astronomer discoverer of Pluto, were on that spacecraft. He will be the first person to escape the solar system and travel among the stars. Several of the early US astronauts have had space burials.
