Ashton Kutcher is heading to the final frontier!
The actor has just signed on to orbit the Earth on Virgin Galactic, the space program created by Virgin Records mogul Sir Richard Branson. Branson announced the news on his blog: “Our 500th future astronaut customer has just signed up! Even better news is that number 500 is Ashton Kutcher.”
Kutcher apparently isn't the only celeb gearing up for a space voyage. British paper The Sun has reported that Beyonce and Jay-Z are planning on making a trip, too.
For those who are concerned that half of Hollywood will go into space -- never to be heard from again -- Branson is set to prove the flight is safe by taking the inaugural trip with his kids. "We've got extensive tests over the next 15 months before myself and my children go into space," he told CNN in May. "And my wife won't forgive me if I don't bring the kids back."
