Cultures around the world have been practicing all types of crazy funeral rituals to memorialize their loved ones. Some traditions are ancient and have been practiced for centuries, while some are brand new developments thanks to scientific advancements. From having your ashes shot out into space, to having your remains stored into a diamond, it’s all pretty out of this world.

When we think of a funeral, we traditionally consider a old-fashioned burial, some type of entombment or possibly a cremation.  What if we told you however, that you could have your ashes packed into fireworks and exploded across the sky for your whole family to see. Alternatively, what if we told you that you could spend eternity travelling into space becoming the astronaut that you wanted to be while you were living. Your family would find happiness it knowing that you were always around somewhere in the universe.
