Mila Kunis Didn’t want her husband, Ashton Kutcher, to go to space, and persuaded him to sell the space flight ticket of Virgin Galactic. The 43-year-old actor bought it nine years ago and became the 500th person to buy the ticket.
Ashton Kutcher is a well-known actor who earned his fame after his role in Two and A Half Men, That 70’s Show, and many others. Currently, the actor is married to his co-star from That 70’s Show, Mila Kunis. The actor is also the father of two kids: a 6-year-old daughter, Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher, and a four-year-old son, Dimitri Portwood Kutcher. Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis currently reside on a 6-acre hilltop property in LA.
Mila thinks, Ashton going to space ‘was not a smart family decision’
In a recent interview with Cheddar News, Two and A Half Men actor said that he was in the next flight of Virgin. But later it got canceled as his partner, Mila, thinks that it was not a smart decision for a man with a family.
“I was supposed to be on the next flight, but I will not be on the next flight,” he said.
“When I got married and had kids, my wife basically encouraged that it was not a smart family decision to be heading into space when we have young children. So I ended up selling my ticket back to Virgin Galactic,” Ashton continued.
Though Ashton Kutcher didn’t go this time, he still plans to go to space in near future. At the end of the interview, he said, “At some point, I’m going to space.”
As per a Richard Branson blog from 2012, Ashton was the 500th person to buy the ticket to the space journey. He bought the ticket to space for $200,000 in 2012. Currently, 600 people have already reserved seats to space, costing from $200,000 – $250,000.
Inside Richard Branson’s trip to the edge of SPACE !!
Last week, Richard Branson and his team successfully landed on earth after reaching the edge of space. The crew of the first VSS Unity test flight included Sirisha Bandla, Beth Moses, and Colin Bennett. Also included were two pilots Dave Mackay and Michael Masucci.
The crew of Virgin Galactic was in zero gravity and enjoyed the view of Earth’s curvature for 3-4 minutes. The billionaire Richard Branson and his crew reached an altitude of around 88 kilometers (53 miles) over New Mexico and later safely landed on the earth’s crust.
“To all you kids out there—I was once a child with a dream, looking up to the stars. Now I’m an adult in a spaceship… If we can do this, just imagine what you can do,” Richard said during his voyage, from the Virgin Galactic spaceplane.
