Believe it or not but now you will be able to scatter ashes of your beloved ones in the space.
A British company Ascension Flights is planning to launch its first Ascension aircraft into the space that will cost UK pound 795(INR 68,000) onwards.
The company was set up by two graduates from University of Sheffield, UK and spent last few years in experimenting by sending hundreds of items into the space.
The remains will go up 36km (22 miles) and will be scattered on the outer atmosphere of Earth. HD video will be made so that family and friends can see the process in the space since you cannot go there.
The Ascension 1 aircraft is a payload box fitted with camera, a tracking device and release mechanism. Camera will shoot two and half hour HD video and release mechanism will release the attached balloon that will open and scatter the ashes and parachute will bring back the canister to Earth.
When the ashes are released from the balloon, the winds of stratosphere will spread the particles out across the planet. This will be released in such a way that it will not return on Earth and will have no impact on air pollution.
The launch will take place in the company’s South Yorkshire base.
Pet funerals are also on offer.
Flights will be authorized by Civil Aviation Ministry.
Though we will not be able to experience this but we can fulfill our beloved’s dreams.
Co-founder Dr Chris Rose said “we feel it’s the ultimate send off”.
