The Celestis DNA Service

Fly and archive your DNA in outer space!

Connect with the Cosmos

With Celestis DNA™ you can fly and store your DNA in outer space! Your biological blueprint will be on board a real space mission.

Fly by yourself ... or with your entire family

Since 1997, Celestis Memorial Spaceflights have provided uniquely compelling, post cremation memorial services that fly a portion of one’s ashes into the final frontier. Now -- for the first time in human history-- Celestis extends personal spaceflight options to everyone – living or deceased, regardless of burial or cremation choices.

  • You and your family to participate in a space mission while you are alive, regardless of whether you are using a Celestis memorial service.
  • You and other family members and friends to fly in space together forever.
  • A deceased loved one to 'live on' in outer space, even if they are not cremated and are buried on Earth.
