Moon Express will spread your ashes on the moon, for a price
Speaking of space, last week Moon Express said on becoming the first private company to receive US approval to land on the moon that its plans for commercial cargo included human remains. The Cape Canaveral, Fla., company wouldn’t put a price on its moon-as-mausoleum service, which it plans to offer with its maiden flight next year.
But in a follow-up interview with The Post’s Richard Morgan, Moon Express co-founder Naveen Jain said the delivery of one’s ashes for lunar interment would be based on a “payload” price of $3 million per kilo. Since the cremated remains of adults generally weigh between 4 and 6 pounds, the indicated price range is $5.4 million to $8.1 million. Better hurry, though, if you want to be first. “We already have a long list,” Jain said.
