Elysium Space offers space burials so your loved ones can have an out of this world afterlife experience. Their services include an app that tracks the intergalactic urn's journey. The deceased person must be cremated and only a sample of the ashes will be used. Only one-way tickets are available. Elysium plans to have the space burial service take off next summer. The accompanying app will work for both Android and iOS.

This symbolic celestial experience takes place in a specially designed aircraft for a dignified memorial expedition. This aircraft orbits Earth for several months to a few years. The mobile app displays the location of the ashes and a real-time view of what the earth looks like at that moment. The service is rendered complete after one full orbit around the globe.
