This pet memorial service has to be the most unusual on Earth. Celestis Pets offers to send your deceased pets into outer space so they can explore the universe once they've passed away. The remains of your dead dogs or cats can be placed on a space flight in what is a truly unique send-off.

Grieving pet owners can send approximately 1 g of cremated pet remains and a lock of their hair to Celestis to be encapsulated in a secure and engraved space-bound vessel. The pet memorial service offers four different packages. For example, Earth Orbit involves sending the capsule into space and then bringing it back into Earth's atmosphere so owners can see a bright light when it re-enters and then disintegrates. Meanwhile Voyager is a never-ending deep space journey.
