If you cannot attend in person, you can view the proceedings live, via webcast. This will be Celestis’ fourth launch from Vandenberg AFB and eighth Earth Orbit space burial.

Spaceflight Industries

Celestis has contracted with Spaceflight Industries of Seattle, Washington to fly the Horizon Flight on a Falcon 9 launch vehicle. Spaceflight Industries is a premier launch services and mission management provider, offering routine, cost-effective access to space.

Families are encouraged to make their reservations early as space on board is limited and the cremated remains or DNA to fly on the Horizon Flight must be integrated into the launch vehicle far in advance of liftoff.

Horizon Flight Mission Logo

The Horizon Flight fulfills the dreams of spaceflight for Celestis participants with a flight among the stars in orbit around the Earth. Liftoff occurs from the beautiful, central California coast, set against the horizon of the Pacific Ocean. From the vantage point of their satellite one will always see the horizon of Earth, set against the spectacular vista of outer space. The eight stars in the logo (soon to be published) represent Celestis' eight Earth Orbit missions, including the Horizon Flight. Vandenberg Air Force Base is the launch site of the mission, which will travel in a polar orbit -- flying over the north and south poles, each orbit coming over the horizon.
