A Texas firm is offering a rather, erm, unique 'tribute' to dearly departed dogs...by blasting their remains in to space!
While a spaceflight memoriam might not be for everyone, it certainly is unique. Currently, services range from the Earth Rise (starting at $995), in which the remains are returned to the loved one after a short flight into space, to Voyager (starting at $12,500), which launches the ashes on a voyage through deep space. With their memorial space flights for human loved ones growing in popularity, there was an increasing demand to fly the remains of beloved pets into space, as well.
"We wanted to do something special for pets, too," Steven Eisle, director of Celestis Pets, tells CultureMap.
