That’s a long way to go to avoid running into your ex!

Ashton Kutcher is taking a really cool trip -- to outer space and beyond in Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo.

The Two and a Half Men star is next in line to ride on Branson’s rocket ship on a trip that could take place as early as next year.

"Great news today 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," Branson wrote on his blog about Demi Moore’s ex.

"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 cost of the trip? Previous trips have cost $200,000 per person, a lot more than the hybrid car Kutcher is often seen driving.

"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,” Branson said.
