Adelaide Funeral Home, Alfred James, and New Zealand-based company Stardust Me have teamed up to offer an extraordinary way for families to remember their loved ones. This innovative service lets families send a gram of ashes into space, enclosed in a titanium container, aboard an Elon Musk-owned SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket. The container will orbit for a decade before re-entering Earth’s atmosphere, creating a star-like spectacle.
The cost of this unique celestial farewell is just over $3,000, making it an affordable alternative to traditional burials. One family has already embraced this idea, with their loved one’s ashes set to launch from Adelaide in March.
In a world where families seek meaningful and unique ways to remember their loved ones, this innovative service promises to leave an cosmic mark, making celestial remembrance a reality.
