About the Starseeker Flight

The Starseeker memorial spaceflight is the perfect way to fulfill your spouse's dream to be an astronaut, remember your parent's encouragement to reach further, celebrate your brother's or sister's desire to explore, honor the courage of a fallen hero. 

When you reserve a place aboard the Starseeker Flight you, your family members and friends are invited to attend several events surrounding the launch, meet mission specialists, visit Spaceport America, view the rocket on launch pad for a final farewell, witness the launch live.

This is the 8th Celestis Earth Rise space mission to carry individually engraved flight capsules to space, coast for 15 minutes and then safely return them to Earth. Although it all looks simple, space launches are very difficult and risky which is why Celestis selects reliable and proven launch providers. Starseeker Flight will be launched aboard the SpaceLoft XL rocket, a launch vehicle with an exceptional success rate. All our services have performance guarantee.

Space aboard the Starseeker flight is limited. Contact Us now if you have questions or to make a reservation.

What People Are Saying


Starseeker Flight Mission Logo

The Starseeker Flight mission patch begins its journey around an image of an impossible star set amidst a star field representing each of the previous fourteen Celestis memorial spaceflights. As the flight name suggests, the Starseeker mission patch illustrates our eternal quest to find life in space. To find within our reach that impossible star that contains all the elements of life. A star that not only ensures the continuity of the human race but widens our vision of life and our appreciation for what we have.

We send our loved ones out into the void to seek this impossible star knowing full well that where their spirits are they know its exact location and, through our hearts, they will lead us there.  

"By cultivating the beautiful we scatter the seeds of heavenly flowers, as by doing good we cultivate those that belong to humanity." ~ Robert A. Heinlein
