HUNDREDS FLY INTO EARTH ORBIT WITH CELESTIS

Celestis, Inc., the pioneer and global leader in Memorial Spaceflight and subsidiary of Space Services, Inc. (Houston, Texas), announced today the successful launch of its latest Memorial Spaceflight – The New Frontier Flight.

The New Frontier Flight is dedicated to the spirit of the 320 mission participants and to people everywhere who share the passion for exploration and discovery. The spacecraft carries a symbolic portion of the cremated remains of each flight participant in Earth orbit. Among the people aboard this mission are Mercury Seven NASA astronaut L. Gordon Cooper, Star Trek actor James Doohan (who played “Mr. Scott”) and hundreds of people from various walks of life in the United States, Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom, China, India, Taiwan, Japan, Australia, The Netherlands, France, South Africa and Russia.

Celestis missions are environmentally friendly in that no cremated remains are released into space. Each Celestis spacecraft stays permanently attached to a rocket stage that orbits Earth until the spacecraft harmlessly re-enters and is completely consumed by Earth’s atmosphere — blazing like a shooting star in final tribute to the passengers aboard. The New Frontier Flight joins two other Celestis satellites currently orbiting our planet. In addition to its Earth orbit service, Celestis offers missions to the Moon, into deep space, and on trajectories that launch the cremated remains into space and return them to Earth.

"The celebrities and everyday people who participate in our various missions all shared in the dream of exploring the great unknown," said Charles Chafer, CEO of Celestis. "With Celestis, the dream of spaceflight, and the desire to take part in the opening of the space frontier can be realized – and is available to everyone."
