I look to the stars. They are so beautiful that I would like to rest there when I die.
But that is a problem, you can’t just get up there very easily.
So the question that I throw out there is, how do you get a 2.8 kg payload (the weight of the average cremated male) to 35,700 km which is geostationary orbit? Or get to 160–2,000 km up (low earth orbit) but travel at 27,000km/h so you don’t fall back again?
And you have a budget; you can’t spend more that $50,000
So far I have come up with a plan to get to the first 34Kms with the use of weather baloons. this could be extended if you could use the baloons to raise a rocket launching platform.
There is no one dead up in space. That’s where I want to be when I die.
