A BREATHTAKING FINAL JOURNEY
If you've always dreamed of travelling beyond our world, a space burial service is a beautiful way to celebrate your life after you are gone. Our service allows you to have your ashes scattered in space, 100,000 feet above the Earth's surface. You will spread out and travel on the stratospheric winds which encircle the globe for weeks and months, finally returning as rain and snow to fertilise new life wherever you land. The ascent and release are captured on video to create a treasured memorial film for your friends and family to remember the event.
SCATTER YOUR ASHES IN SPACE
WE GO ABOVE AND BEYOND
Your family and friends are all invited to attend the space funeral launch to wish you farewell on your voyage.
A memorial should be as unique as the life we celebrate, so the Aura Flights team make sure everything you need to make the day special and personal is taken care of, including glasses of bubbly to make a toast and a display system to share songs, images and video.
For anyone who can't attend, we host a live video feed from the launch site so all your extended friends and family can watch the ceremony remotely.
If there’s anything else you want, just let us know and we will make it happen.
SECURE YOUR PLACE AMONG THE STARS
Planning your own memorial service means you'll be remembered the way you want, with your wishes respected. Advance arrangements save your loved ones stress and financial burdens at a difficult time in their lives. The process is simple: choose the Aura Flights package that's right for you and nominate a loved one to act as a point of contact after you've gone. We'll talk you both through the process, answering any questions you may have so there are no surprises or complications. When the time comes, we'll bring your ashes into our care and arrange everything.
We offer two Aura Flights packages so you can take a final journey that fits your unique personality. The Memorial Launch carries all your ashes and scatters them in space, while the Voyager service sends a ceremonial portion of ash to space and returns them to your loved one's care afterwards. Learn more about each package below.
MAKE MEMORIES EVERLASTING
Once the flight is completed, we have plenty of ways to preserve the memory for those you've left behind.
They’ll receive a video showing the launch, ascent and release of your 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 a USB device, 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.
EXPERTLY DESIGNED FOR
YOUR PEACE OF MIND
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.
