Letter to the editor: Launch cremated remains into space? A poorly grounded idea

Re: “Out with a bang: Brunswick companies to blast human, pet remains into space” (Oct. 6, Page C1):

If there was ever an example for the need of a carbon tax, the business plan by Brunswick-based bluShift Aerospace and Northern Lights Space Exploration to launch the remains of humans and pets into space is it.

So, the wealthy few can have their and their pets’ remains in eternal space at the huge carbon cost to the planet of putting them there. So, all the remaining living life on the planet can try to live under an ever-increasing warming planet and its resulting consequences of death and destruction. Never mind the addition of space junk and that of trash falling back to Earth.

What rock do the founder and CEO of bluShift Aerospace and the managing partner of Northern Lights Space Exploration live under?
