How many of you have thought about the end? How many of you have any ideas at all about how you want your family to deal with your remains once your gone. I do; and my brood are non too happy about it, to say the least.
I love science and I love anything to do with the cosmos; so for me there is only one option for the end of my life. I want to be a cadaver and then have my ashes sent up into space. I want my ending to be astronomical.
At the top of my bucket list is a trip into orbit on anything that will take me. I want to see the sun rise over the whole of the Earth and revel in its beauty. I dream of being weightless, of seeing comets and stars so brilliant they burn their image into my mind so I never forget the sight of it.
I’m at peace most easily when the stars are out. I could lay out under their brilliant light for hours on end, just staring at their majesty; hunting the familiar patterns I know so well. I was born in love with the night sky.
I have investigated the procedure for becoming a cadaver to some degree and know that I need to have a university or teaching hospital agree to take me. I have the forms to fill out already, but I don’t think I’ll ever get to space unless I win the lottery and fund it myself.
I keep preying that someone will crack on with space tourism already so that by the time I’m ready to pop my clogs, the cost of a ticket wont cost so much and I’ll be able to fund it myself.
I can dream cant I?
