About the Aurora Flight

Aurora, the ninth Celestis Earth Rise service, will fly from Spaceport America, New Mexico. Each flight capsule -- containing a symbolic portion of cremated remains or DNA sample -- will experience the elegant dance of weightlessness, and return to Earth for recovery. Celestis will then return each flown flight capsule to the family as a keepsake.
