Today's actors have only made it to space on screen, but some stars could actually travel out of this world as early as this year. Justin Bieber is the latest star to book a seat on a Virgin Galactic suborbital flight, joining a string of A-listers set to board the company's spaceships. As the first commercial spaceline, Virgin Galactic plans to operate several flights aboard spaceships that carry six passengers and two pilots. A seat will cost you more than $200,000. After passengers spend a few days preparing with their crew, they'll bast off from a spaceport in New Mexico for a short flight that includes several minutes of weightlessness.

As of now, the company is still testing, but Virgin Group owner Sir Richard Branson hopes to launch the first full space flight by the end of the year, making space tourism a probable reality. Besides Bieber, see which stars are planning trips.
