We carry your loved one’s ashes to the edge of space, where they are gently released into the stratospheric winds which encircle the globe. They will travel for many months, spreading out across all the seas and continents of our planet. Bit by bit, they will drift into lower portions of the atmosphere. Tiny droplets of moisture will form around the ashes which fall as rain or snow, coming to rest across the world and ultimately releasing their nutrients back into nature to support new life and growth.
The unique scattering vessel has been purpose-designed to provide a visually spectacular scatter every time. It is carried into space by a custom-made latex balloon filled with renewable hydrogen gas. Over the course of ninety minutes, your loved one ascends to a height of 100,000 feet, above 99.5% of the Earth’s atmosphere, where you can see the curvature of the Earth and the blackness of space, before being gently scattered in front of our state-of-the-art camera. The equipment then returns safely to Earth to be recovered.
