Buckle up.

Within a decade, the FAA is predicting that space tourism will become a billion-dollar industry, according to a Reuters report.

There is a handful of companies planning to offer sub-orbital private space flights, most notably Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic. Branson announced earlier this week that "Two and a Half Men" television star Ashton Kutcher was the 500th person to sign up for a $200,000 ride aboard Virgin Galactic's Space Ship Two. According to Discovery News, Virgin Galactic expects to begin flights in 2013.
