WHAT‘S ETERNAL REALM?
Eternal Realm is a funeral service system for outer space burial.
There are two forms to choose from:
Transforming treated ashes into Nexus launched overhead.
Using a space funeral suit wrapped around the body to hit space to redefine the longitude and dimensionality of life.
Pick up the deceased
Sign a contract
Select a Nexus
Watch the live launch
Pay tribute to loved ones in real time
It is a new funeral service system with a human touch
Sending the remains to space and providing the surviving family with the appropriate observation platform.
Our project is compatible with traditional ethics and funeral rituals, and users can use our service after holding a traditional funeral.
Personalization, exclusivity and immediacy
We provide one-on-one service to our clients, with shorter waiting periods for lift-off, and users can specify their own Nexus/Space burial suit style and launch target location.
Space community concept
Even if you go into space, you can choose a community to achieve a joint burial with relatives and friends. Our target users are mainly romantics who are interested in space exploration and have a high income.
·CHOOSE TYPE OF NEXUS & WTCH THE LAUNCH SITE
·SEND MEMORIAL SPEECH
·DAILY & IMMEDIATE MOURNING
·FORM 1 NEXUS
Nexus colors and appearance are generated based on information such as the personality of the deceased
Every Nexus has its specific code
Distance measurement, alignment, laser angle reflector
Laser line reflectors are total reflectors with multiple layers of dielectric films of different refractive indices sequentially coated on a substrate.
Long distance energy supply
Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generator
A type of generator that uses radioactive decay to obtain energy.
·FORM 2 SPACE FUNERAL SUIT
Space funeral suits, or space capsules, are wrapped around the deceased and launched overhead, using a natural combustion-boosting process, i.e. high speed motion to produce high temperature combustion.
The deceased becomes the most romantic comet in the sky that crosses the earth.
Each suit is printed with an epitaph in memory of the deceased, the star chart.
The first prototype of the space suit was made using laser-cut wooden boards and rice paper.
Compared with the current domestic form of burial, space burial has not yet become a mainstream trend,
but with the development of the space industry, especially the expansion of deep space exploration, this form of burial is very promising in the near future 10 years.
Overall, this population is non-specific and not bound by industry, culture, geography, etc.
a) Political environment
The first space state, Asgardia, was established and social space spread into space
The whole process of launching commercial satellites with private funding has been opened up.
Large-scale revision of the Funeral Management Regulations, proposing to continue to promote funeral reform with "implementing cremation and reforming earth burial" as the core.
b) Economic Population
Carbon Peak, Carbon Neutral
Per capita funeral expenditure and cemetery costs are rising year by year, and the funeral expenditure/income ratio is the second highest in the world
GDP, per capita consumption expenditure, per capita disposable income rising year by year.
Rising education level - lower fertility rate
Weakening of traditional ethics - existing problems of funeral services in China
Life and death education and funeral laws are getting better - the game of funeral culture rights
The specificity of the festival culture in terms of emotional tone - the social and natural nature of death
SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket lifts off with the ashes of more than 100 deceased
For the first time, China obtained the echo signal of all laser reflectors on the Moon
According to our user research.
The pain points of existing funeral services
Users have pain points such as "too extravagant", "cumbersome" and "depressing" for traditional funerals.
Willingness to choose their funeral form
Among the users who are open to new funerals, a considerable number of them are willing to participate in the design of their own funeral, and they have expressed their wishes such as "medical donation", "burial with loved ones" and "more freedom of form".
Attitude towards the project
Most users are willing to try the "space travel after death" option.
