What? Did you think Ashton Kutcher wasn’t going to pay $200,000 for a seat on Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic, the thing that will exist in the future, I guess, in which rich people can go to space if they want to? Please. Of COURSE Ashton Kutcher is going to go to space on that thing. Richard Branson posted a note about it on his blog:

Great news today news from our Astronaut Relations team at Virgin Galactic: our 500th future astronaut customer has just signed up! Even better news is that number 500 is Ashton Kutcher. 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.

Congratulations, Ashton Kutcher! If anyone deserves to be the 500th person aboard Sir Richard Branson’s weird $200,000 space thing that 100% sounds like a bad, scary, “rich people die due to their greed” Twilight Zone idea, it is you. Cowabunga, dude. I just hope Justin Bieber didn’t also buy a seat, or you better prepare to be SPACE PUNK’D!

  12. You guys, we did it! We’re launching Ashton Kutcher into outer space!!

  13. When George Clooney signs up, I will finally believe in that whole end of days crap. It’d be cool if they could just leave Ashton there to plug up the hole he leaves in the doh-zone.

  14. Tara Reid is totally a stowaway on this mess.
