According to Richard Branson’sÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â blog,Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Ashton KutcherÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â has signed up to go to space as the 500th “astronaut” ofÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â Sir Richard Branson’s forthcoming Virgin Galactic’sÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â SpaceShipTwoÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â rocket plane. Wait… it gets weirder. Guess who else is reportedly going to be onboard?
Says Branson: Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â “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 forÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â himself.”
TheÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â SpaceShipTwo, aka theÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â VSS Enterprise, is currently in the final stages of an “exhaustive” test flight program and is yet to have a final launch date.
Get ready for the weird stuff… the reported manifest is a who’s-who of celebs that sounds more like a cheesy flight disaster movie full of guest stars. According to MSNBC, other celebrities reportedly on the flight list areÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â Tom Hanks,Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Katy Perry,Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Brad PittÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â andÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â Angelina Jolie, andÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â Stephen Hawking, who is getting a free ride courtesy of Branson. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Tickets cost 200,000 dollars, andÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â BeyonceÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â andÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â Jay-ZÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â are rumored to be considering the trip.
