Eternity magazine contained a new item on immortality and people's fascination with it. The article read: “The quest for pseudoimmortality took a giant leap forward with the announcement that you can send your remains "to the heavens" when you die. The Celestis Group of Melbourne, Florida, has received federal approval for a privately financed launch of a rocket (in early 1987), with a nose cone containing the ashes of 10,330 paying customers. Each person's ashes will be chemically treated to fit inside a 2-by-5/8-inch titanium capsule. The nose cone will enter an orbit at about 1,900 miles up, and, thanks to a reflective surface, “it will be visible to earth-bound loved ones." The Celestis group isn't promising an eternal rest, though. The orbit may deteriorate in about 63 million years". (SOURCE: Green, M. P. (1989).
