Countdown to Launch
Celestis is pleased to announce that our next Earth Rise Flight is scheduled for launch on October 9, 2013. Reservations are now open.
This is our 6th Earth Rise
mission, 13th overall memorial spaceflight, and 2nd flight this year. We will once
again launch aboard an UP
Aerospace SpaceLoft XL launch vehicle from Spaceport
America, New Mexico.
With this mission:
Your loved one's dream of spaceflight is fulfilled as we launch
a symbolic portion of your loved one's cremated remains into space.
The cremated remains then return to Earth and are recovered.
You receive the flown space capsule or module -- with the cremated
remains still inside -- as a keepsake.
You are invited to participate in our launch-related events
at Spaceport America. We normally take a tour of mission control
and the launch pad, view the rocket, hold a pre-launch briefing,
conduct a non-sectarian memorial service for all of those on board
the mission, and witness the launch.
You receive a video of the launch and related activities, as
well as a Launch Certificate.
Your loved one is memorialized on our website with a biography
and photo that remain on our site in perpetuity.
In addition to our launch-related activities, the Spaceport America
area offers a number of interesting tourist attractions. Please
our blog for more information.

The cremated remains must
be integrated onto the rocket well before launch day. There is a very limited amount of space on
board the rocket. We already have several clients for this mission.
Therefore, we advise you to make a reservation as soon as possible
to ensure your loved one is on this flight.
