To celebrate your loved one’s life, Aura Flights' unique space burial service launches their ashes to the edge of space and releases them to travel the world on a breathtaking final journey. The ascent and release are captured on video to create a treasured memorial film to remember the event. With a commitment to quality and care, we’ll be there to guide you throughout the journey.


You, your family and friends are all invited to attend the space funeral launch to wish your loved one farewell on their voyage. A memorial should be as unique as the life we celebrate, so the Aura Flights team make sure you have everything on hand to make the day special and personal, including glasses of bubbly to make a toast and a display system to share songs, images and video. If there’s anything else you want, just let us know and we will make it happen.


We offer three Aura Flights packages so you can send your loved one on a final journey that fits their unique personality. The Memorial Launch is conducted from our site in Sheffield, while the Personal Launch allows you to select your own launch location; the Voyager service sends a ceremonial portion of your loved one's ashes to space and returns them to your care afterwards. Learn more about each package below.

Fulfill a lifelong dream of going into space, sending a ceremonial portion of ashes on an incredible final journey.

I look up at the blue sky and the clear starry nights differently since dad's ashes were sent up there...

...so much more than just a ride into space.

Once the flight is completed, we have plenty of ways to preserve the memory of your loved one’s breathtaking final journey.


You’ll receive a video showing the launch, ascent and release of the ashes against the stunning backdrop of the Earth in space, set to a song of your choice and incorporating any text, images and video you want to include.


This will be delivered on your choice of USB or DVD, along with a certificate recording the details of the space launch. We can even set up a dedicated memorial page on our website to host the video and allow people to share messages of love and support.



Our unique scattering vessel has been purpose-designed by our engineers to provide a visually spectacular scatter every time. It is carried into space by a custom-made latex balloon filled with renewable hydrogen gas. Over the course of ninety minutes, your loved one ascends to a height of 100,000 feet, above 99.5% of the Earth’s atmosphere, where you can see the curvature of the Earth and the blackness of space, before being gently scattered in front of our state-of-the-art camera. Our equipment then returns safely to Earth to be recovered by our team.


Aura Flights was created by Sent Into Space, the world’s leading experts in Near Space balloon flight. With more flights logged than any other company worldwide, Sent Into Space has an unrivalled wealth of experience and engineering know-how. All our flight systems were designed in-house and tested for over two years before public release, to ensure a perfect result every time. For more information on the comprehensive planning process that happens before every launch and the safety features onboard our scattering vessel, get in touch with one of our advisers today.
