An American actor Ashton Kutcher will fly into space. He bought a ticket. He will be a space tourist. He is the 500th customer of a space company.

A lot of businessmen bought a ticket before him, but he is the first celebrity who bought a ticket. Sir Richard Branson, the boss of Virgin Galactic, is happy that Ashton bought a ticket. He will take Ashton into space. It will be a beautiful trip.

Ashton paid 200,000 dollars for the ticket. Everybody before him paid 200,000 dollars for their ticket.

Now, he must wait for his trip. The first trip will be in 11 months. One trip is only for six people. So Ashton must wait for a long time.
