The launch of SpaceX will carry the ashes of 100 people into space



He wanted his mortal remains to be sent into space.

Now the dream of Eberling has come true, as it is expected that his and about 100 more burned remains on Monday in a commemorative satellite of the company Elysium Space to be brought into space.

The San Francisco-based company said families paid around $ 2,500 to put their family's ashes aboard the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.

The Journey into Space will be the remnant of military veterans and aviation enthusiasts, whose families "wanted to celebrate a loved one in the poetry of the starry sky," Elysium Space said in an e-mail message.

James Asche and the others were packed into a 4 inch square Cubesat satellite, said Elysium Space founder and CEO Thomas Civeit told CNN. According to Civeit, families can track the spaceship in real time through an app that circles the Earth before it falls back to Earth.

The launch is part of a "ride-in mission" organized by Space Flight. The company said it had bought the rocket to accommodate customers ranging from schools to commercial enterprises to government agencies and international organizations.

  Some of the capsules containing the burnt remains are sent into space as part of Elysium Star 2.

"May You Fly Through the Skies Now"

Eberling was a rocket and rocket enthusiast who was thrilled all his life, his said Mother to CNN. He was also an avid photographer and often went to Vandenberg Air Force Base in California to take photos of takeoffs.

At the time of his death, James's family had been informed only about missions that carried the remnants of humans into space after being launched from Cape Canaveral in Florida, Beverly said in a telephone interview with CNN Lompoc, California.

But about a month after James 'death, they spotted Elysium Space and told the company that they wanted James' Ash to be launched from the Vandenberg AFB. That way the family could be there.

A sample of James's ashes was placed in a small capsule with his initials JME.

The Eberlings will send a message with him saying, "James, you were a grounded eagle on the earth – may you float through the heavens now."

The two years since her son's death are "nerve-wracking" for Beverly. She had given the company some ashes of her son, and at one point she was skeptical that the mission would actually continue.

But the Eberlings were patient and eventually got an e-mail saying that the launch date was set for November 19, 2018, Beverly said two years before the day James died.

The start has been delayed, but Beverly does not mind.

"We are overjoyed to fulfill his last wish, it means a lot to my husband and me that we are capable of doing this for him," said Beverly. "And I think that James is very, very happy to finally see that this will finally happen."

It will not be the first time someone has sent earthly remains to the stars. In 1998, a small vial containing the ashes of astronomer Eugene Shoemaker as part of NASA's NASA Prospector mission crashed to the moon and remains on the surface.
And the ashes of "Star Trek" actor James Doohan, who starred on the show "Scotty," was sent under 320 axle sets on a mission similar to that of Elysium 2012. In the ashes of Mercury 7, astronaut Gordon Cooper was also seen climbing this flight.
