Elyusium/Lower Free Flye

NSSDCA/COSPAR ID: 2018-099C

Description

The Elysium-Star 1U CubeSats are a space burial service offered by Elysium Space.

The passive Cubesat holds trays with multiple individual capsules containing samples of cremated ashes. The satellite does not contain any systems.

Elysium-Star 2 flew also the CUBIT (CubeSat Identification Tag) developed by SRI International, a small add-on to cubesats that transmits a signal identifying that satellite. The system, weighing only about 20 grams, is designed to operate independently from the rest of the cubesat, including its own battery.
