the ultimate final adventure

Scatter ashes in space

When nowhere on Earth feels grand enough...

When an exceptional person passes away, they deserve to be remembered and celebrated in an exceptional way.


But picking the right location to scatter a loved one's ashes can be a fraught process at a time of grief.

How do you commemorate the person whose spirit shone brighter than most?

...choose the ultimate adventure

 Aura Flights scatters each passenger's ashes over 100,000 feet above the Earth in the inky black of space.

Here, they spread out to travel around the entire planet for 3–6 months, before finally settling across the globe as rainfall and snowflakes to become one with nature again.

It's the ultimate final adventure for a life well-lived, all for less than the price of a traditional funeral service.

How does it work?

Our passengers travel in a spacecraft lifted by a hydrogen-filled stratospheric balloon. When the craft reaches 100,000 feet (32,500 metres) above the Earth, the intelligent scatter vessel at the heart of the craft opens to release the ashes in a gentle cascade. We scatter the full complement of ashes, with each flight dedicated to a single passenger or couple. The spacecraft is equipped with two space-capable 4K cameras, which film the launch, ascent and moment of release.


Over the following 6 months, the passenger's ashes traverse the entire planet, spreading out to cover every corner of the globe. In time, they descend into the upper atmosphere, mingle with pockets of water vapour, and finally return to the Earth as raindrops and snowflakes.

What's included?


Following the flight, we create a personalised memorial video of the flight for friends and family, with photographs, written messages and video clips from the passenger's life and set to your choice of song. Each video is hosted on a dedicated passenger memorial page on our website with your messages, and space for loved ones to share their memories. 

On each flight, we include a photo of the passenger on the scatter vessel. This photo is returned to you after the launch in a laser-etched magnetic frame as a souvenir of the journey, along with a copy of the memorial video on a USB.

Not only is a space scattering an incredible way to celebrate a loved one, it's also surprisingly affordable: at £2950, our memorial scattering service costs less than the average traditional funeral.
