The remains of 152 people will be orbited next week on board Elon Musk & # 39; s SpaceX Falcon Heavy.

The launch is scheduled for Monday evening in Florida, and while space brokers can barely grasp their enthusiasm, it will be a much more emotional moment for those whose beloved ash is on board.

The families of the 152 deceased have organized the unique sender Celestis DNA – a company that works to place human remains on board of various spacecraft.

In 2018, each of the families paid more than $ 5,000 to place up to seven grams of ash on the spaceship.

The ashes of the deceased will be packed in metal storage capsules and placed on one of Falcon Heavy & # 39; s satellites for the Monday evening explosion.

The SpaceX Falcon Heavy from Elon Musk will start next Monday evening with the remains of 152 people on board. The reusable spacecraft has been launched twice before and has been pictured during a previous blast

Each of the metal capsules has a sentimental message that is etched on its side in much the same way as a tombstone.

According to Company insider, some of the statements that were chosen include: & # 39; Reach for the stars! & # 39; and & # 39; Space Truckin & # 39; Forever & # 39 ;.

Celestis DNA has been active since 1994 and has helped place human remains on 15 different spacecraft.

Star Trek actor James Doohan, who died in 2005, released some of his remains into space with the help of Celestis DNA in 2008.

Several famous astronauts and scientists have also blown their ashes around the earth.

But while the unique farewell was once reserved for the rich and famous, affordable prices in recent years have meant that space lovers from all walks of life can now have their axes sent into orbit.

Meanwhile, Monday night launch will be the third time that Falcon Heavy has been blown into space.

The reusable spacecraft has had two previous missions. The first, in February 2018, saw a Tesla Roadster orbit around the sun. The second mission, which took place in April 2019, was also a success, with the communications satellite Arabsat 6A in orbit
