Ashton Kutcher will travel into space - level 2, A12
An American actor Ashton Kutcher is going to fly into space. He decided to buy a ticket. He is going to be a space tourist. He became the 500th customer of a company which offers these flights.
A lot of businessmen bought a ticket before him but he is the first celebrity who did it. Sir Richard Branson, the owner of Virgin Galactic, called him to welcome him on board. His company is going to organize private flights into space.
Ashton paid 200,000 dollars for the trip. It is the same amount of money that everybody else paid before him.
Now, he only has to wait for his trip. The first flight should be in about 11 months. There are only six seats for passengers for each trip, so Ashton will have to wait for a long time.
