A Japanese company is taking reservations for couples to get married in space. The ceremony will take about 60 minutes, and both the bride and groom will be in zero gravity. The couple will have at least three guests present, but the majority of the ceremony will take place before the flight. The ceremony will take place in a small space vessel, and a Japanese cosmonaut will be the one to perform it. The ceremony will be conducted by a cosmonaut and a Russian engineer, and will be broadcast live by satellite to the world.
The bride and groom’s wedding was conducted by video link, as the marriage was a private family conference. The bride arrived 16 years earlier, on the ground in Texas. The ceremony took place via a video link to Houston. The groom walked down the aisle to David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” as the bride blew kisses to her. A life-size cardboard cutout of the couple posed for photographs with the couple before the ceremony. The best man played Mendelssohn’s wedding march for the happy couple.
During the wedding ceremony, the bride and groom wore formal flight uniforms and the priest was Ed Lu. The ceremony was a proxy marriage performed by a cosmonaut who lives in Houston. The couple also chose to be married by a priest. The couple’s reception took place on the ground in Oklahoma City, and the reception was filmed live. Despite the lack of local guests, the wedding was a memorable moment for both the bride and groom.
The ceremony was performed on board the Rocket Plane, a private airport in Oklahoma. Yuri Malenchenko’s best man, Ed Lu, stood in for him in Houston. The couple blew kisses and gave a speech. A wedding transmission was classified as a “private family conference” and no one knew how the couple would fare in the unknown. There were many surprises along the way, but they weren’t what the world expected.
The ceremony took place 100 kilometers above the surface of the Earth. The ceremony was not filmed on NASA TV, but it was broadcast in a private conference. The bride and groom exchanged vows in a ceremony filmed on a video link. The video feeds were also live streamed by the cosmonaut. A few months later, they were married and had a daughter, Camilla. The two-hour event was considered a success and many experts predicted that Yuri Malenchenko would be the last cosmonaut to land on the ISS. The cosmonaut went on to two more missions to the ISS, but his career continued.
There are a few restrictions for a space wedding, however, and many people have the doubts about whether such a ceremony is allowed in space. For instance, a cosmonaut’s contract states that it is illegal to marry a woman in space. A marriage in space is considered illegal under most jurisdictions. It is a legal requirement to use a translator in order to perform a space wedding. It is possible to get married in another country, though, so the cosmonauts can get the blessing of their respective spouses.
