About the Perseverance Flight

Perseverance, the tenth Celestis Earth Rise service, will fly from Spaceport America, New Mexico. Launch will occur on board an UP Aerospace SpaceLoft XL launch vehicle. Each flight capsule -- containing a symbolic portion of cremated remains or DNA sample -- will experience the elegant dance of weightlessness, and return to Earth for recovery. Celestis will then return each participant's flown flight capsule to the participant's family as a keepsake. This will be Celestis' 25th overall memorial spaceflight since its founding in 1994.
