Funerals are expensive right? So why not save some cash when you meet your maker and get shot in space?

  •  The Luna Service: So, any guesses where you’re going with this one? Yup, it’s time to visit our planet’s nearest neighbour, the Moon. As part of an agreement with Odyssey Moon Limited and Astrobiotic Technology, Inc (whoever they are?)  and also not available until 2014/15, this package will shot you straight onto the surface of the moon. So just like Sam Rockwell’s clones in the film Moon you too could become a permanent addition to the lunar service. A real life man on the moon, except, you’re dead.

Price: 1 gram – $12,500, +50% – 2 grams, +100% – 7 grams, +200% – 14 grams.

  • The Voyager Service: This has to be my favourite and most definitely one I will be hounding whatever hell-spawn I father to sign me up for. The Voyager service sends you up and out of the Earth-Moon system as you begin your seemingly infinite journey into the void. You’ll be placed aboard the “Sunjammer Solar Sail”, an actual Nasa fronted mission as part of which you’ll be heading 3 million kilometres towards the sun on an infinite journey around it. What’s cool about this is the craft your remains are on will have cameras on it so it could be possibly to have images beamed back of how far you’ve made it. 

Price: 1 gram – $12,500, +50% – 2 grams, +100% – 7 grams, +200% – 14 grams.

If you wanna check out more about what goes down at Celestis, Inc. their website is here. Not surprisingly, there have been a few notable people who opted in to becoming space debris including Gene Roddenberry (the guy who created Star trek), Timothy Leary (Turn on, tune in, drop out?) and James Doohan (the guy who played Scotty in Star trek.)

As far as price goes some of the packages actually work out cheaper than a traditional funeral and we all know how depressing and shit they can be. So why not become and astronaut after you kick the bucket? I mean, its cheaper and it’s not like you’ve got anything better to do.
