The specially designed application will even enable the people to see the remains of deceased by following the progress of the rocket. The remains would be visible to people even after the capsule has been sent to the space.

The Elysium flight is booked online and is the cheapest available space flight till now. The cost of this flight is 1995 US dollar. At present, the booking is open only for the US.
