A Lasting Tribute

Star Trek represented, and still does represent, the future we can have, a future that is beyond the petty squabbles we are dealing with here on Earth, now as much as ever, and we are able to devote ourselves to the betterment of all humankind by doing what we do so well: explore. This kind of a future isn’t impossible and we need to all rethink our priorities to really bring that vision to life.”

Nichelle Nichols (Lt. Uhura)

Celestis MindFile™

Engraving Your Name, Message, and Photos for 10,000 Years

The Celestis MindFile™ will be sent on the upcoming Enterprise Flight and can archive over 81,000 pages of eye-readable text or pictures on a one-inch nickel disc 10,000 times faster than current focused ion beam technology for a duration of over 10,000 years!

Readable to the human-eye, the content is laser-etched to one billionth of a meter onto a nickel surface, making your engraving virtually disaster-proof, and withstand temperatures up to 2,651 degrees F.

What message or photo will you add to the Celestis MindFile™ heading into deep space?

A portion of the proceeds as part of Celestis’ multi-year commitment will go to the Nichelle Nichols Foundation for diversity and non-included populations in STEM.

Next Mission: Voyager 01
– The Enterprise Flight

The first Celestis Voyager Service – currently scheduled for launch in Early 2023 - will be named Enterprise Flight in special dedication to those on board, including honored participants Gene and Majel Barrett-Roddenberry and James Doohan.

In 1976, responding to a nationwide write-in campaign of Star Trek fans, President Gerald Ford renamed the first Space Shuttle “Enterprise,” hosting the cast and creator at the Sept. 17th Palmdale, CA ceremonial rollout of Enterprise. This merging of science fiction with reality using the global appeal of Star Trek is once again taking place as Celestis launches Voyager 01 – The Enterprise Flight.

“For anyone who is forward-thinking or really embraces the future that my father envisioned in Star Trek it really seems like a unique and cool opportunity to put yourself up there…”

Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry, son of Majel Barrett and Gene Roddenberry

Enterprise Flight Mission Patch

For all of our Star Trekkie fans, Star Trek’s®  influence upon the Enterprise mission can be felt deeply even in the mission’s patch, which was designed by space artist Eric Gignac. The patch depicts “the dominant star…crossed by a version of the traditional NASA astronaut logo – a shooting star borne on a winged column – signifying that all those aboard will reach space and, symbolically, become astronauts as they make their final journey among the stars.”
