Could have been Matt Damon


NASA asked some Swedish scientists what to do with a dead person on Mars, and this is what they came up with.

Good thing they didn't ask Iceland. They'd end up with Astronaut hákarl.

Okay, Sweden, just lie doooown on this couch here and relax.
Take a deep breath.
There you go. Good boy.
Now, tell Dr DarkMage all your worries.

"Well, Dr, this one time Åland and I walked in on my sister whipping Finland's nuts with a notted shoelace, and--"

On second thought, why don't you have a beer first?

Freeze dried human remains stored in coffee containers is a temporary soloution, could they use them as fertilizer, we do after all contain 3.4% Nitrogen and 0.4% Potassium.

I expected a comic about Finland being the happiest nation on the planet (according to the UN). I just wonder how that'd look here.

But I'll settle for Mad Sweden. :D

Well, sweden is right; if you dont put sentimental value on old bags of inedible meat. Norway is just taking it a step further, as the dusted remains can easily be turned into fertilizer and thus become "food" (I sincerly hope he didnt mean to eat the body itself... for health reasons)
Repatriation and such is just a silly idea thought of by silly people with silly beliefs.

IIRC this is the policy for handling a dead body on the ISS. Put it in a body bag, bring it outside of the station, and pulverize the now-frozen body to dust so it's easier to store.

That's actually a pretty good idea. Mars should be a terrific place for naturally freeze-drying things. Anything freeze-dried is crumbly and therefore easier to compact. You'd want that on a spacecraft or Mars base, I'd think.
