Star Trek Maker To Spend Eternity In Space

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

Gene Roddenberry the creator of "Star Trek Series" died in 1991. His wife Majel Barrett Roddenberry hired Celestis Inc., a company that specializes in "memorial spaceflights" to launch a part of his remains into space in 1997. Majel Barrett Roddenberry died just last Dec. 18, 2008. Celestis Inc. will be launching their spacecraft carrying capsules and digitized tributes from all their fans in 2010. It will not be returning to Earth and will just fall deeper into space. Their bodies will be creamated then put into capsules and will not return to earth.

Memorial Spaceflights like these are fitting tributes for explorers, pioneers, entrepreneurs, aerospace professionals, and all who have an interest in space exploration, science fiction, or astronomy or who simply feel at home in the cosmos. I on the other hand would not like to be shipped to space like this because I'd rather stay here instead so that my family would be able to visit me anytime. ^_^

Would you like to have the same experience too?
