What is Ascension Flights?

We are all made of stardust.

Saying goodbye to your loved ones is never easy. Deciding when, where and how to scatter their ashes can be a lengthy and even painful process.

When celebrating the life of an explorer, you want to remember their connection to the world around them and the joy of adventure and discovery. So why limit yourself to a single place? Why not choose to remember them wherever you go?


Ascension is a final farewell, one last gift to celebrate a wonderful life. The ashes of the deceased are sent to the edge of space, over 100,000 feet above the Earth’s surface. In this place of peace and serenity, the ashes are released and carried on a final journey across the world on the winds of the stratosphere.

As the particles eventually return to Earth, precipitation will form around them creating raindrops and snowflakes. Small amounts of nutritious chemicals will stimulate plant growth wherever it lands. In this way, your loved one’s earthly remains will become a part of the cycles which create and sustain life on our planet.

After the delivery payload returns, we will return a video of the scattering to you, set against the awe-inspiring backdrop of our home world from space.


Our flight packages start from £1895.
