While estranged wife Demi Moore has been slowly working at getting her life back after her recent release from rehab, Ashton has been doing something else…

…like fulfilling Michael Kelso’s dream of becoming an astronaut.

The “Two and a Half Men” star has reportedly signed up to travel to outer space—for a huge fee of $200,000—with Virgin Galactic, an airline company within the Virgin Group that offers sub-orbital spaceflights to “astronaut customers.”

Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Group, announced the news on his blog yesterday. He wrote:

“Great news today news from our Astronaut Relations team at Virgin Galactic: our 500th future astronaut customer has just signed up! Even better news is that number 500 is Ashton Kutcher. I gave Ashton a quick call to congratulate and welcome him. He 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.”

The billionaire business magnate added:

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.”

Wow.

What do you think of Ashton’s upcoming outer space trip?
