Can you help?

Wednesday, 20 June 2012

 

 

Space burial is about sending a portion of cremation ashes into space, then releasing them so that they can orbit the Earth. 

Up in Glasgow, Tom Walkinshaw is developing his own space burial programme. It’s ambitious stuff. He’s won an award from Glasgow Caledonian University and he has the support of the Prince’s Scottish Youth Business Trust.

Tom is carrying out a survey to find out more about what people want, and he has appealed to the readers of the GFG to tell him what they think.

We very much hope you’ll help him out. You can do that by going over to the survey — it’s very short — here

Thank you!

    Thanks Rich. Yeah if the Yanks can do it why can’t we? That is our mentality. We are progressing slowly but surely and trying to cut through more red tape than you could imagine. Thank you for the support!

    Did any one see the news recently, Scotty from star trek (she’ll never make it captian) had his ashes sent up in a rocket in the States I think it is a great idea that we have something UK based – Well done Tom and the Team.
