Los Angeles, CA – Before the first Virgin Galatic flight has even taken off, billionaire Richard Branson is already planning another flight to a new destination: Uranus.
You might know Branson as the founder of the Virgin Group. He is the man behind Virgin Records; the label that once signed artists like Genesis and The Smashing Pumpkins, and the founder of international airline Virgin Atlantic. Recently, he created Virgin Galatic, a company that will give wealthy individuals an opportunity to go to space.
By the end of the year, celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Ashton Kutcher and Leonardo DiCaprio will be boarding one of the first ships to space.
But the idea of leaving the earth’s atmosphere wasn’t enough for one person.
Comedic actor, Seth Rogen, decided to donate a very large amount of money to Branson’s current project in exchange for a promise from Branson that his next project will be a flight to Uranus.
“A trip to Uranus; it’s hilarious. I can’t wait for the merchandise,” Rogan told us in a recent interview. “‘I went to Uranus and all I got was this shitty shirt.’ ‘I went to Uranus and man am I pooped.’ The ideas are just unlimited,” the Pineapple Express star continued. “All of the other guys are really excited about it to. We’ll definitely be going on the first flight.”
