Honor the dream and memory of your departed loved one aboard this Voyager Memorial Spaceflight. The service includes
The Celestis Enterprise Flight ™ will launch from planet Earth and travel beyond the Earth-Moon system, beyond the James Webb telescope, and into interplanetary deep space – where it will join the other planets, moons, comets, and asteroids in our solar system on a never-ending journey through the cosmos.
Upon completion of its powered burn and coast phase, the Enterprise Flight will become Enterprise Station™ – the most distant permanent human repository outpost and a pathfinder for the continuing human exploration of space.
The Enterprise Flight, carrying specially manufactured and inscribed individual flight capsules containing cremated remains, complete human genome individual DNA samples, and names and messages of well-wishers from around the globe will be launched aboard a United Launch Alliance Vulcan Centaur rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida.
Aboard Enterprise, fittingly, will be the creator and several cast members of the original Star Trek television series, as well as an Apollo-era astronaut, together with people from all walks of life, interests, and vocations. Enterprise is truly a once-in-a-lifetime, exclusive opportunity for you or your loved ones – or both – to join an incredible mission of purpose alongside the most recognizable personas in space exploration, real or imagined.
Celestis will host a three-day event that will include mission briefings, the opportunity to attend an astronaut hosted dinner, launch site tours, a compelling on site memorial service, and – of course – viewing of the launch.
All events will be webcast, with constant updates available at this website and all social media platforms.
ABOARD THE ENTERPRISE FLIGHT
"Enterprise" is a fitting name for the first Voyager Service memorial spaceflight. For its inaugural mission into the depths of space and time, Celestis has selected a patch design that honors Enterprise Flight participants Gene Roddenberry (the creator of Star Trek); Gene's spouse, Majel Barrett-Roddenberry (Star Trek's "Nurse Chapel" and "Lwaxana Troi"); and James Doohan ("Mr. Scott"), as well as the many other Celestis participants for whom Star Trek was an inspiration in their lives. The dominant star is crossed by a version of the traditional NASA astronaut logo – a shooting star borne on a winged column – signifying that all those aboard will reach space and, symbolically, become astronauts as they make their final journey among the stars.
The Enterprise Flight Mission logo was designed exclusively for Celestis by noted space artist Eric Gignac. Eric Gignac's portfolio also includes co-design of NASA Space Shuttle mission patches for the STS 128 and 133 missions.
