ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Ashton Kutcher is scheduled to be Virgin Galactic’s 500th future astronaut customer, according to Virgin Group Founder Richard Branson’s blog.
Branson said on Monday that Kutcher is part of a “fast-expanding group of true pioneers who are on their way to a life changing experience and a place in the history books.”
The company’s spaceport is located in southern New Mexico north of Las Cruces.
“[Kutcher] 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,” Branson said.
