    Think Ashton Kutcher is out of this world? Soon, you may literally be right.

    Sir Richard Branson announced in a blog post Monday that the Two and a Half Men star is Virgin Galactic's 500th "future astronaut."

    So does this mean we should get our requests in to Ashton for moon rocks now?

    Not so fast. While Branson's spaceships are "flying in the final stages of our exhaustive test flight program," they're not ready quite yet.

    "We are guided by safety and so will ensure that everything is just as safe as it can possibly be before we start commercial services," he wrote. "Particularly as I will be on the first commercial flight with my kids!"

    The entrepreneur said that it's "great to have [Ashton] on board."
