Ashton Kutcher is Virgin Galactic’s 500th astronaut customer

While we are all eagerly waiting for Virgin Galactic to make history by foraying into space travel, a few wealthy folks have already gone ahead and booked their seats to space. And among the lucky few who will enjoy one of the first few journey’s to space is none other than Hollywood heart throb, Ashton Kutcher. Yes, the Two and a Half Men star has signed up to be the 500th “astronaut customer” to fly into space with Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic, announced Branson on his blog today.

And as expected the actor has tweeted about this development as well. However, instead of writing an original tweet, he has gone ahead and re-tweeted Branson’s welcome: “Welcome on board @aplusk – @virgingalactic’s 500th future astronaut! See you up in space Ashton?”
Any guesses who will be the next star to bite Branson’s bait?
