  • Now SpaceX will Transport Cremated Remains of Your Deceased Relatives into Outer Space

It so happens to be the case that from now onwards Space X rockets will be used to transport the cremated remains of your deceased relatives into outer space. The sum of money taken for such a task is a nominal $2500.

A firm that sends ashes of deceased people into orbit has hooked up with Elon Musk’s SpaceX to book flights of its rockets regarding this job. According to CNBC, located in San Francisco, Elysium Space is a memorial spaceflight agency composed of erstwhile members of NASA and funeral directors.

The core philosophy of the company is to shift the concept of the burial of cremated remains from earth-based strategies to space-oriented plans.

When clientele of the company line up for services, they receive a custom-made kit that consists of a container for the ashes of their near and dear ones who have died.

This kit containing the ashes is then sent in parcel form back to the company which places it alongside many others headed for outer space on a spaceflight.This in turn is taken in piggyback manner via a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.

For a period of two years, the spaceflight belonging to Elysium Space will remain in orbital axis around the earth. As a final sign of concluding the act of death, the spaceflight will re-enter the atmosphere of earth and burn to cinders along its trajectory downwards due to the sheer heat of friction.

The relatives and family members not to mention friends of the deceased may watch all this via an Apple iOS or Google Android application. Up until now a hundred people have signed up for the service. It costs a mere $2500.

According to Wired, SpaceX has total control over the launch date of the whole operation. The burning up of the Elysium spaceflight in the end is almost a sort of poetic instance. It shows us how the name and fame of every human being who is born on this planet is to quote John Keats epitaph “writ in water”.

This is basically the beginning of the era of memorial spacecraft. The commemoration of individuals who have died and have had their remains cremated in the form of ashes is what this is all about.

As is said on Techcrunch, the mission of SpaceX carrying all those remains of deceased people on board will launch from an air base in California sometime in 2018. Till then individuals are receiving the custom-made kits for putting the ashes of their departed ones in on a regular basis.
