The cremated remains of four dead U.S. presidents will be sent to deep space by Celestis, a U.S.-Texas based company known for launching memorial space flights. The projet is planned to be achived this year on a United Launch Alliance’s Vulcan Centaur rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida. The Celestis Enterprise company has existed for over two decades and was even picked by NASA to honor one of its scientists. Whein in its latest stage in space, the mission will be referred to as Enterprise Station, the most distant human outpost where it will orbit the Sun at a distance of 150-300 million miles. George Washington, Ronald Reagan, John F. Kennedy, and Dwight D. Eisenhower will be honored this way. It’s about their DNA samples too to be launched.
Apart from hair samples of U.S. Presidents who have long passed away, which were originally from the Louis Mushro well-known celebrity hair collector, the company is also sending samples and DNA of the iconic Star Trek franchise, such as Gene Roddenberry, his wife, Majel Barrett Roddenberry, son Eugene, and some members of the cast.
