Houston company expands from human remains, space flights soon for cremated pets

A Houston company that already sends human remains out of this world will offer the same memorial space flights for four-legged loved ones.

Celestis Inc. on Wednesday announced that rockets carrying the cremated remains of dogs and cats will start this fall.

Spokeswoman Pazia (PAH'-zee-uh) Schonfeld says the cost will be about the same as for human remains sent into space and returned, starting at about $995.

Celestis Pets is working with a California company, Into the Sunset Pet Transition Center of San Diego, for pet cremations.

Celestis for years has offered a rocket service that takes partial human remains into space and brings them back, including ashes of "Star Trek" TV show creator Gene Roddenberry.
