Ashton Kutcher and other celebrities are planning a trip into space.

Money can buy just about ANYTHING: beauty, love, youth and immunity from the law; now we’re learning that space travel is open for bids as well…. Here is an update on Celebrity Space Travel.

Ashton Kutcher is the latest celebrity who shelled out $200,000 for a two and half hour roundtrip ticket into space, undoubtedly a thrill of a lifetime. He’s joined the waiting list of numerous celebrities eager to conquer the Universe. Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Tom Hanks and Katy Perry are the others. Not to be outdone, Stephen Hawking – recognized as the Einstein of our times – will travel as well but his ticket – based on what we know so far – will be free.

The space-travel venture SpaceShipTwo (owned and run by Sir Richard Branson) is scheduled to take flight later this year.

Upon the news of Kutcher’s booking the space flight, Branson said: “Ashton is joining a fast expanding group of true pioneers who are on their way to a life changing experience and a place in the history books. It’s great to have him on board.”

Space. the new frontier has just opened for fearless pioneers who have enough money to burn some…. And YOU believe that a trip to the movies is expensive…. Chill out, you can book a space trip too, only first you’ll need a job with a salary compatible with Ashton’s. Having replaced Charlie Sheen on “Two And Half Men” Kutcher has a $15.4 million contract which means that the trip costs him LESS than one week’s salary. Celebrity Space Travel? If you’ve got this kind of money, you’ll become a celebrity automatically. Got money, will fly….
