NASA isn't sure what to do with corpses in space, but they may need to figure it out soon.

Of the more than 550 people we've sent into the cosmos, just 21 have died—and only 3 actually above the boundary between Earth and space—since humankind first took to strapping ourselves to rockets. When there have been fatalities, the entire crew has been lost, leaving no one to rescue. But as we move closer to a human mission to Mars, there's a higher likelihood that individuals could be stranded or even perish—whether that's on the way, while living in harsh environments, or at some other point of the mission.
