For the first time, Celestis DNATM affords the opportunity to celebrate a life with a Celestis Memorial Spaceflight...regardless of final disposition.
By extracting DNA from a non-invasive mouth swab - and preparing the sample for spaceflight - anyone’s complete unique genome can be launched into space.
Beyond Cremation Memorial Services
Since 1994, Celestis Memorial Spaceflights have been available to anyone choosing cremation as final disposition. Now, by selecting the Celestis DNA service, you may choose a Celestis Memorial Spaceflight for yourself or a loved one, regardless of final disposition choice. A memorial spaceflight option is no longer limited only to those choosing cremation.
Even more, the Celestis DNA service now extends affordable personal spaceflight options to the living, providing the means for all of us to make a very real journey to space, and even to elect off planet personal DNA storage. Fly as one or with family and friends on a personal voyage among the stars.
Making Genetic Spaceflight Possible
Who else but Celestis - the iconic global pioneer and leader in Memorial Spaceflight - could provide this affordable means for personal space migration?
To date, only a few well known “celebrities” have been permitted by NASA and its international partners to send their unique biological signature – their DNA – to the International Space Station.
Now, with Celestis DNA, we may all choose to launch your DNA into space as a symbolic and meaningful gesture or as a tribute to a life dedicated to exploration and understanding.
Memorial spaceflight services for those not choosing cremation. The Celestis DNA service permits anyone to choose this option for yourself or a loved one, regardless of choice for final disposition.
Off planet DNA storage and preservation. Place your unique biological signature – your DNA – aboard a spacecraft that resides either on the moon or in deep space, permanently.
Home banking your heritage. The Celestis DNA service includes – at no extra cost – a DNA Memorial Home Banking Solution kit. Genetic Health, Inc. will provide a second DNA sample to your designated beneficiary permitting long term DNA storage at home. Ensure that your or a loved one’s genetic history is preserved and available for future analysis and assessment.
Option for interstellar migration. Combining the powerful tools of deep space radio transmission and digital DNA, the same Celestis team that conducted both Cosmic Calls plans to target stars with planetary systems and will offer you the option to beam your or a loved one’s unique DNA signature to distant galaxies, creating affordable, personal interstellar travel options for all of us.
Many theories suggest that life on Earth originated from interstellar DNA. Read about humanity’s efforts to return life’s signature to the stars.
Celestis has partnered with Genetic Health, Inc. of Canada - a recognized world leader in DNA collection and home storage for consumers - to produce Celestis DNA flight samples.
The Genetic Health DNA Memorial home banking kit provides the perfect means for both preserving DNA for future generations (a complimentary home banking kit is included for each Celestis DNA participant) and for preparing DNA for a Memorial Spaceflight. The Genetic Health proprietary process produces a flight ready substrate (powder) which contains the entire genome for each individual to be flown.
