This Pet Memorial Service Sends Your Dead Pets Into Space

— October 10, 2014 — Lifestyle
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.
Trend Themes
1. Space-bound Pet Memorials - The trend of sending deceased pets into space for memorializing or honoring their lives could disrupt traditional pet funeral industries.
2. Innovative Cremation Alternatives - Developing unique and memorable ways of dealing with deceased pets such as space-bound memorials could disrupt traditional cremation services.
3. Personalized Space Exploration - As more individuals are able to have small portions of their cremated remains sent into space, companies could look into developing personalized space exploration services.
Industry Implications
1. Pet Funeral Services - Integrating space-bound memorials as an option within pet funeral services could disrupt traditional pet funeral industries.
2. Cremation Services - Offering unique cremation options for pets such as space-bound memorials could disrupt traditional cremation services for both pets and humans.
3. Space Tourism - As individuals become more interested in personalized space exploration, space tourism companies could develop services for scattering small portions of cremated remains in space as a unique offering.
