Ashton Kutcher signed up for space flight

(WFLX)- A popular film and t-v star is signing up for a flight into space.

Ashton Kutcher is the 500th person to sign up for a sub-orbital trip through Virgin Galactic.

The trip includes a flight 62-miles above the earth, so passengers can see the planet's arc and experience weightlessness.

So far there is no firm date set yet on when the sitcom star will take his flight, but Virgin Galactic reps say they hope to start service as soon as next year.
