According to Sir Richard Branson, Justin Bieber and manager/BFF Scooter Braun are the latest big names to sign on for the Virgin Galactic that will soon take pedestrians into space.
“Great to hear @justinbieber & @scooterbraun are latest @virgingalactic future astronauts. Congrats, see you up there!” Branson Tweeted this morning.
Ashton Kutcher will also be a passenger on this outer space mission, which reportedly costs $250,000 per passenger.
Branson’s venture just finished its first rocket-powered test last month and the company is scheduled to begin commercial flights in 2014.
No word yet on just when Bieber will expand his fan base to include another atmosphere, however.
