NASA taking cremated ashes to the moon with Celestis in 2021

People’s cremated ashes are to be sent to the Moon next year as part of a commercial burial service piggybacking on a NASA lunar mission. Texas space memorial firm Celestis will provide more than a dozen capsules carrying human remains and DNA for the flight. Dubbed Luna 2, the mission will launch on a July 2021 NASA flight to a region of the Moon called Lacus Mortis, Space.com reports. Capsules will remain on the Moon as a permanent memorial, Celestis said. As well as Celestis capsules, the Pittsburgh-based company will use its lander to drop off scientific and technology demonstration equipment.
