The dream of spaceflight is now a reality for all of us.

From the stars we are born, and so to the stars we return. Leaving the bounds of Earth to touch the cosmos is an experience few have ever known, but millions have dreamed about. Celestis Memorial Spaceflights make the dream of spaceflight a reality by launching a symbolic portion of cremated remains into Earth orbit.

A Mission of Purpose

Venture into Earth orbit as part of a real space mission.

Celestis Memorial Spaceflights open a new frontier in space for all of us. You or your loved one will be memorialized at a celebratory launch, and the ashes of the departed will venture into Earth orbit as part of a real space mission, riding alongside a commercial or scientific satellite. There isn’t a more compelling memorial service for someone who loves science fiction, marvels at space or simply longs to be at one with the cosmos...

A Dream Fulfilled

The rocket lifts its precious cargo higher and higher

With a roar and a fiery streak across the sky, the rocket lifts its precious cargo higher and higher into the peaceful solitude of space. Witness the launch of your loved one aboard a powerful rocket lifting off from Spaceport America — the birthplace of the American rocketry, or from Cape Canaveral - the cradle of the space age. Join other families for one final close up, private tour or the rocket on the launch pad the day before the launch. At liftoff, you know you’re fulfilling a dream.

Fact: Celestis has a heritage of over 30 years and the experience of 13 completed memorial spaceflights, with more flights scheduled yearly.

A Commemoration of Love

At the memorial service preceding, families share life stories via webcast, or choose quiet contemplation of the next day's launch.

Fact: Celestis representatives personally served families from more than 20 countries.
