Ash Scattering Rockets

The Sky's The Limit

Whether your loved one was a Star Trek fan, science fiction buff or just always wanted a ride in a rocket, we can help.

With modern technology, launching ashes by rocket is within the reach of everyone’s budget. Ashes are dispersed over a wide area with the prevailing winds from a great height. The payload, carefully wrapped in a silk carrier can be just a few grams or the entire contents of the urn. Dispersal a mile high or higher is no problem, depending on launch site. Launches can be held in the day or at night.

Gene Roddenberry, creator of Star Trek, was one of the first people to have their ashes carried into space. A portion James Doohan’s ashes, AKA Scotty in many Star Trek episodes, have also left Earth.

NASA’s launched samples of ashes to the moon and even on a mission past the planet Pluto. Clyde Tombaugh ashes, the astronomer discoverer of Pluto, were on that spacecraft. He will be the first person to escape the solar system and travel among the stars. Several of the early US astronauts have had space burials.

Choose From The Range Of Ash Scattering Rockets

Scattering ashes by model rocket within the earth’s atmosphere is more personal and local, not to mention less dear than a trip to orbit or beyond. It is legal to disperse ashes anywhere in the United Kingdom but rocket launches are restricted in some areas such as near airports or cities.

Depending on the mission desired, all or a portion of the cremains can be lofted as a payload to the height desired and over the location requested whenever possible. A memorial ceremony can be held before launch and the launch button can be pressed by an appropriate relation. A keepsake video of the launch can be made. The carrier vehicle can be recovered as a memento or destroyed.

Cremation ashes urns come in all shapes and sizes, but will the one you want contain all the ashes you have?

You won’t be able to launch all the ash you have in the rocket but it can spread over several launches

So if you don’t want to remove the ashes from the container and weigh them separately, then you have to deduct the weight of the urn.

Ashes tend come back from the crematoria or funeral director usually in a limited range of containers but Comparethecoffin supply a full range at the lowest wholesale price. If ordered with the coffin we are able to offer an additional discount.

Natural Material

In recent years the has been a trend to move to more sustainable and natural material for coffins. They often have a softer look and feel and have no ‘hard edges’ or corners and our coffins have no metal fixing and often ties and fixing are made with the materials itself.

The products that we don’t make in the UK are either manufactured by co-operative associations or are covered by a fair trade agre ements ensuring that all workers and suppliers are treated fairly and work in good and safe conditions.

In line with our strong green beliefs, all of our products are manufactured in the most environm entally friendly way. Our products are hand made from locally materials grown and cropped in licensed p lantations.

English Willow Coffin

The English Willow has been grown in England on the Somerset Levels for many centuries and has the ability to regenerate repeatedly from the same “crown” of the plant for up to 40 years. Willow colour variations are achieved naturally by drying, boiling or stripping the bark.

Bamboo Coffin

Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet, growing up to a metre per day. The Chinese have a saying that the only way to control its spread is to eat the shoots. Bamboo is also incredibly strong, with a tensile strength greater that that of steel. There is a 300 metre long suspension bridge in South China which hangs from bamboo cables fastened over a canyon; it does not have a single metal nail, screw or bolt in its construction.

Please Note: Panda bears do not eat the species of bamboo which are used to make our products.

Banana Coffin

The banana, believed to have originated from the jungles of Asia, is generally mistaken for a tree, but is actually the world’s largest herb. Their main stem can reach a height of up to 8 metres, though it is not actually formed of wood, but the tightly coiled leaves of the plant. Our banana coffins are made using these dried leaves after the tree has produced its fruit and the stem is cut back each year.

European Willow Coffin

Our European willow products are hand made to by a co-operative of cottage industries in Poland. The willow is a deciduous shrub found primarily on moist soil in cold and temperate regions of the Northern hemisphere. Almost all European willows take root very readily from cuttings or even where broken branches lie on the ground.
