Ashton has laid down a cool $200,000 to bag a place on a trip into outer space on Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic Space Ship Two.
The Two and a Half Men star is next in line due to ride on Branson’s rocket ship. That means he could be taking the trip as early as next year.
Branson blogged the news of Ashton’s signing up to be the 500th future astronaut and said he had personally called the actor to congratulate 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,” Branson said.
So how much would such a trip into space cost? Previous trips have cost $200,000 per person, which is considerably more than the hybrid car Kutcher is often seen driving.
How would you like to join Ashton Kutcher on this trip of a lifetime as a pioneer into space, the final frontier?
