‘He wanted his ashes sent up in a little rocket. We went one step further’: Emotional moment a beloved granddad’s ashes were scattered 32,000 feet above earth on the edge of space

  • Philip Robson died aged 65 and his family wanted to plot a ‘fitting farewell’
  • Family members spent £700 ($900) building a high-tech helium balloon …

A British family has used a weather balloon to scatter the ashes of their beloved grandfather  at the edge of the space. This image was snapped from a camera aboard the balloon, which also carried a picture of Philip Robson, who died aged 65

Mr Robson (right), a former teacher in a special needs school, lived with his wife Jak (left) and their daughter Ayngie Tappin, 44, her husband Robert, 46 and their two children, nine-year-old Daisy and Letty, six, in Sayers Common, Kent

Mr Robson's family and friends spent £700 ($900) building a high-tech helium balloon which would carry his ashes 32,000 feet (9,750m) above the Sussex countryside before bursting

In an emotional send-off, his family and friends stood side-by-side to watch his remains vanish above the clouds. The flight lasted two hours and took some stunning images high above the Sussex countryside

Mr Robson fought a progressive lung illness for five years before passing away on October 7 last year. One of his final wishes before he died at the St Peter and St John's Hospice in Lewes, was to not have a funeral

Ms Robson said: 'He didn't want a funeral because he didn't want to upset the grandchildren more than he had to'

Stashed away in a huge hot air balloon, the ashes were scattered to the earth below as the balloon burst at the edge of the atmosphere around 15 miles (24km) up

This map plots the path taken by the balloon. While the high-tech balloon landed safely, around 35 miles (56km) away, a fault with its GPS tracking device meant the family were unable to track the balloon's descent

The family are still hopeful of being able to one day find the balloon
