Company offers moon as final resting place

The moon could become a final resting place for some of mankind thanks to a commercial service that hopes to send human ashes to the lunar surface on robotic landers, the company said on Thursday.

Celestis, Inc., a company that pioneered the sending of cremated remains into suborbital space on rockets, said it would start a service to the surface of the moon that could begin as early as next year.

Kinda brings a more morbid irony to Jackie Gleason's familiar old catch-phrase from the early TV sitcom,
The Honeymooners:

"To the Moon, Alice!!"
