After the memorial spacecraft launches, customers will be able to track their loved one's celestial journey on a free mobile app, available on Apple's App Store and Google play. The app will show, in real time, where the spacecraft is and how the world looks from that location.
After a few months in orbit, the spacecraft will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere, where it will burn up, leaving no space debris behind, Civeit said.
Civeit did not reveal how many people have signed up for an Elysium Space memorial flight yet, but did say there is "strong interest" for the service in both the United States and Japan. The company received orders within a week of its launch earlier this year.
"Funeral services have been changing over the last 50 years, transitioning from religious rituals to life celebration ceremonies," Civeit said. "Crossing the Milky Way and eventually becoming a shooting star is a poetic experience."
