Ashton Kutcher Is Heading to Space
Branson announced on his blog post "I gave Ashton a quick call to congratulate and welcome him. He is as thrilled as we are at the prospect of being among the first to cross the final frontier (and back!) with us and to experience the magic of space for himself."
According to the Virgin website, tickets for the excursion cost $200,000. It's unclear when Kutcher will be blasting off, but the Virgin Galactic is set to be the first commercial airline to offer suborbital spaceflights.
- Branson added, "Ashton is joining a fast expanding group of true pioneers who are on their way to a life changing experience and a place in the history books. It's great to have him on board."
