The Elysium memorial spacecraft is launched along with much larger commercial or scientific satellites. The latter drive the schedule as they are the primary payloads carried by the launch vehicle. Our spacecraft is a secondary payload, which is manifested to an existing launch offering the option to deploy smaller satellites.
Our dedicated team is constantly working to find the safest launch opportunities in the United States (most likely from Cape Canaveral, FL, Vandenberg AFB, CA, or Wallops, VA). Please keep in mind that the launch can be delayed for a number of technical reasons, which are outside the control of Elysium Space.

The Star II Mission is fully confirmed. Elysium Space is partnering with Spaceflight, the leading provider of launch and mission management services. The integration of the Elysium spacecraft into the launch vehicle is performed several months in advance. Moreover, the number of participants is limited by the spacecraft capacity and reservations will be on a first come first serve basis. We therefore strongly advise you to book your spaceflight as early as possible.
