The firm allows clients to place a portion of the deceased person's ashes in a special capsule that is then sent into orbit via an Elysium spacecraft for a "Memorial Spaceflight", the ABC News reported.

Moreover, people can "view" the remains, even after the capsule is sent into space, by following the rocket's progress through a specially designed app.

After a few months, when the rocket renters the earth's atmosphere it burns up.

The Elysium flight, which can be booked online, is believed to be one of the cheapest space flights available, costing just 1,995 dollars.
