 Space funeral: ashes of 47 people will be sent into space

A telecommunications satellite will be launched into orbit with the burned remains of 47 people. Such an unusual funeral will be held by the space company Celestis, and the procession will be attended by 160 guests from all over the world.

According to The Byte, such an order was made by relatives of the deceased. The satellite, along with the remains, will stay in space for a decade, and when its equipment is decommissioned, the ashes will burn with it when it enters the atmosphere.

The launch will be carried out from the coast of Florida, writes The Byte.
