Space Funeral

Tired of the same old normal funeral on the ground? Well thanks to Elysium Space, you can now send cremated remains into Earth's orbit for just under $2,000! The are now currently taking reservations for next summer's first "memorial spaceflight" launch from Cape Canaveral, Fla.  

According to their website, "Elysium Space offers awe-inspiring celestial services to honor and celebrate the life of someone you love."

Heres a video about Elysium Space:

They describe their service and how everthing works as a spacecraft containing capsulated cremated ashes will be launched into Earth's orbit for several months. Family and friends of the former loved ones can follow the orbital journey via a special mobile app, which will show the space craft's current location. Finally the spacecraft will reenter Earth's atmosphere with the brightness of a shooting star.
