    Kutcher, 34, has signed up to be the 500th "astronaut customer," Branson wrote.  Explained the mogul, "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."
