Popular star signs up to go into space

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A popular film and TV star has signed 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 Earth so passengers can see the planet's arc and experience weightlessness.

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