Elysium Space is a privately held corporation founded in 2013. It has its main office in San Francisco, California and representation in Tokyo, Japan.
Thomas Civeit is the founder of Elysium Space. He oversees the design and development of the memorial spaceflights.
The final frontier is an exceptional place to honor and celebrate the life of someone you love. Elysium Space offers awe-inspiring memorial spaceflights to have a symbolic portion of a departed's ashes launched into space.
Specially designed memorial spacecraft respectfully and peacefully orbits the Earth for several months. Family and friends follow this journey through the stars using beautiful mobile app, which shows in real time the spacecraft location and how the world look from this majestic place.
Eventually, in a last poetic moment, the spacecraft harmlessly reenters the Earth's atmosphere, blazing as a shooting star.
Launches take place in the United States at the Cape Canaveral launch facility in Florida. This fantastic and unique event will be webcasted
How it works
After you place your order, you will receive a kit containing a custom ash capsule to collect a cremated remains sample. The kit includes a mini-scoop to easily transfer a symbolic portion of the remains from a cremation urn to the capsule. Simply ask assistance from a funeral professional if you are uncomfortable doing it yourself. After you ship the capsule back to company, (box and prepaid shipping label are included) company will carefully and respectfully place your capsule in the Elysium spacecraft that will be launched into space. The capsule is made from space-grade aluminum alloy and is individually prepared to have the initials of your choice, up to 3 characters, elegantly engraved on its cap.
In addition to the capsule, a message of your choice, up to 80 characters, will be engraved in one of the spacecraft metal plates. Your words will be permanently and beautifully displayed on the memorial spacecraft, which will carry your special remembrance message to the stars.
The launch will take place at the Cape Canaveral launch facility in Florida. This fantastic and unique event will be webcasted and company will provide a professionally produced video as well. After the Elysium spacecraft is deployed, you will receive a certificate attesting the success of the launch, including the official spacecraft tracking ID assigned by the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD).
