About the Starseeker Flight

Starseeker, the eighth Celestis Earth Rise service, is scheduled to launch from Spaceport America, New Mexico on June 15, 2017. Your loved one’s flight capsule - containing a symbolic portion of cremated remains or DNA sample and engraved with a memorial message - will launch into space, experience the elegant dance of weightlessness, and return to Earth for recovery and return to you as a flown keepsake.

The Celestis flight capsules will be flown aboard an UP Aerospace SpaceLoft XL rocket, on a mission sponsored by the NASA Spaceflight Opportunities Program to conduct microgravity experiments and technology demonstrations for NASA and affiliated researchers.

What Our Families Are Saying

Starseeker Flight Mission Logo

The Starseeker Flight Mission Logo, designed exclusively for Celestis by noted space artist Eric Gignac, places a single large star amidst a field of fourteen smaller stars.  The smaller star field depicts all fourteen Celestis Memorial Spaceflights conducted to date – an unmatched flight heritage.

The dominant star is crossed by Gignac’s 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.
