I want a Space Funeral!

I’m most definitely a science nut. And I mean that in the most sincere funerals

And if you read my previous post you know I really love astrology as well.

So much so that I’ve been following the Gaia satellite and all of its miraculous discoveries.

It’s made me think a lot about the future. Simply because it gets me really excited about all the possibilities.

I mean just think about all the new planets that are being discovered.

Hundreds of millions of stars.

It just makes my mind wander into the galaxies and think about all the possibilities of life out there.

I wish so much that I could be an astronaut. Just jump on a spaceship and fly right out like it was Star Wars or Star Trek.

But of course that’s not reality. I’m a geek, not an idiot!

I’ve been doing a lot of research on the Internet lately about the stars and galaxies and space travel.

It’s a shame that NASA has really stopped a lot of what they were doing. I’m sure it saddens a lot more people and just myself.

But what I did stumble across is this website called Celestis, Inc.

it’s really kind of cool. What it is is a way for you after you have died to go to space. You literally have a space funeral.  Or at least a part of you does.

What it is as if you get cremated, you can request your remains be put on an actual rocket and be blasted out of the Earth’s atmosphere and into space.

From there there are a few choices on what you can do with your ashes.

Personally for me, I would want my ashes to be jettisoned out into space so that I can float along with the galaxy for the rest of eternity.

Yeah, it’s not quite the same as being alive in jet setting across the galaxy in a cool spaceship, but it is a real attainable thing that you can do.

I mean what are the other choices? Be buried in a hole? Be put into an urn on somebody’s fireplace for a while until somebody spills into the carpet and the gets vacuumed up and thrown out with the rest of the waste?

I mean once your dad you’re dead. What does it matter anymore?

At least you’re kind of leaving a legacy behind. Whatever your friends talk about you they’ll always end up slipping into the conversation how your floating around in space for the rest of eternity. How cool is that?

So that’s how am going to go. I’ve heard he made my decision.

I’m going to float in space for all of eternity. Or at least my ashes will be.

Although I guess it would be kind of hard to have a funeral? LOL!
