Is the Sky Limit’s?
With Modern Technology, launching Ashes by Rocket is within the reach of everyone. Ashes are dispersed over a wide area with the prevailing winds. The payload, carefully wrapped in a silk carrier can be a few grams or the contents of the entire 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, creater of Star Trek, was one of the first people to have their Ashes carried into space. A portion James Doohan's ashes, who played Scotty in many Star Trek episodes, has also left Earth.
NASA has launched samples of Ashes to the moon and even on a mission to Pluto. The Ashes of Clyde Tombaugh, 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.
Scattering ashes by model rocket within the earth's Atmosphere is more personal and local, not to mention less dear than a trip to orbit or beyond. It is legal to disperse ashes anywhere in the United Kingdom but rocket launches are restricted in some areas.
Depending on the mission desired, all or a portion of the cremains will be lofted as a payload to the height desired and over the location requested whenever possible. A memorial ceremony can be held before launch and the launch button can be pressed by an appropriate person.
Depending on particulars, dispersing a small sample of ashes can cost as little as several hundred pounds. Larger payloads, higher altitudes and special requests add to the expense. A keepsake video of the launch can be made. The carrier vehicle can be recovered as a memento or destroyed.
Model Rocketry as been a pastime for many hobbyists and professional organisations in the UK since the mid 1980s. Smaller rockets are powered by black powder motors while larger models use the same fuel as the Space Shuttle's solid rocket boosters.Model rockets are distinguished from fireworks as the model returns to earth gently for recovery.
