Shot into space too - but one can always hope, right? If I recall correctly, the steam-roller thought popped up when an image of Trump soiled my TV. Go figure… ;)

Yes ... I actually have a human(?) fossilized half-head. Recovered from the basement of an archeology department building right before bulldozers were to fill it in.

I googled plastination in order to provide the above link - and now, on my CNN Breaking News page - I have two adverts for plastination products. Next time I think I will google `send me gold`. ;)

Put your body in a Jameson satellite (seriously geeky reference).
I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
Spoiler:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.
- Douglas Adams

Given the cost of launch per kilo, you might want to get freeze-dried first. And rather than orbit the Earth, aim for a Lagrange point orbit to minimise maintenance thrust.
