Celestis TBD [ULA]
Celestis, now renamed Space Services Inc. (SSI), is the first company to offer space burials. The Celestis payloads are small containers (CPAC, Celestis Payload Attached Container), which are bolted to the last stage of the launch vehicle, in this case a Vulcan. The containers were mounted inside the avionics compartment.
The containers contain small aluminum capsule about the size of a lipstick, containing symbolic 7 g of cremated remains.
