Ashton Kutcher to Become First ‘Two and a Half Men’ Star in Space

"Two and a Half Men" star Kutcher will be the company's 500th customer, Branson announced on his blog Monday.

"I gave Ashton a quick call to congratulate and welcome him," Branson wrote. "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."

According to Branson, Virgin Galactic's spaceships "are built and flying in the final stages of our exhaustive test flight program." Tickets for the flights run $200,000.

Actor Brad Pitt and "X-Men" director Bryan Singer are also among those who have reportedly booked tickets for Virgin Galactic flights.
