That's the vision of Elysium Space, a company that aims to launch portions of cremated human remains into space. Under Elysium Space's plan, human ashes will launch into space and orbit the Earth for several months before burning up in the atmosphere as a "shooting star." The company has already launched a mobile app to track ashes in orbit, and hopes to launch its first memorial flight in 2014. "A memorial spaceflight is a unique experience for family and friends to make a memory and remember a loved one," said Elysium Space founder Thomas Civeit, a former NASA engineer. Elysium Space isn't the first company to offer memorial spaceflights for the deceased.
