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. The Elysium memorial spacecraft will be on the upcoming Spaceflight’s SSO-A Mission aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 to be launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. The selected launch date will be announced by SpaceX. Elysium Space will keep the Star II Mission reservations open until a couple of months before the integration of the spacecraft into the launch vehicle. 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.
