I don’t know what shocked me more — that you can pay to have your cremated remains shot into space or that it costs significantly less than the average coffin (let alone funeral). For a mere $2500 you can have your loved one’s remains put into Earth orbit. For $10,000 you can get buried on the moon.
What does that say about the coffin industry?
To date 150 people have been buried in space and only one person has been buried on the moon — astronomer Dr. Eugene Shoemaker.
