The bodies Of Some Well-known Persons Will Be Sent Into Space On a Rocket.

Part of the remains will be dropped on the Moon and the remaining portion will be transported into orbit as part of the expedition’s goal to build a “permanent memorial” in space.

Launched by the Texas-based corporation Celestis, the rocket is slated to take off on January 8 at 2.18 am.

The cremations and DNA samples will be transported in titanium quarter-and half-inch capsules.

Sixty-two of the 330 sets of remains that the rocket will carry when it takes off will be dumped on the moon.

These will drop in a contraption known as the Peregrine Lunar Lander, which measures six feet in height and eight feet in width.

The remaining 268 capsules will be launched into space and will keep circling the Sun.

Prices for the service start at a few thousand dollars and go up to an astounding $13,000.

A number of Star Trek actors, including Nichelle Nichols (Lt. Uhura), James Doohan (Scotty), and DeForest Kelley (Dr. McCoy), are among the other passengers on the aircraft.

The remains of Gene Roddenberry, the creator of Star Trek, and his wife Majel Barrett Roddenberry will also be included.
