Ashton Kutcher will travel into space - level 3, A12
An American actor Ashton Kutcher is going to fly into space. He has 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 for space before him but he is the first celebrity to do it. Sir Richard Branson, the owner of Virgin Galactic, called him to welcome him on board. His company is going to organize flights into space on a private spaceship.
Ashton paid 200,000 dollars for the trip. It is the same amount of money for everybody who paid for the trip.
Now, he only has to wait for his trip. The first flight should take place within the next 11 months. The spaceship only has six seats for passengers, so it means that Ashton will be waiting for a long time.
