Bieber hasn’t commented on his space plans but he did retweet Branson’s message. Bieber joins an
elite filthy rich group of celebrities that will soon be heading to space. So far, stars like Ashton Kutcher and Leonardo DiCaprio have also booked their tickets on the Virgin Galactic. More than 500 people have already signed up for a ride on Branson’s spaceship.

A ticket on the Virgin’s SpaceShipTwo costs about $250,000. Branson is hoping to start commercial flights as early as next year. The trip will bring future astronauts 62 miles above earth where they will experience a few minutes of weightlessness and get an amazing view of the earth.
Here’s a video about the Virgin Galactic.
