Justin Bieber is the latest celebrity to join Virgin Galactic's growing list of future astronauts!

Virgin Group founder Richard Branson congratulated Bieber on Twitter on Wednesday.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Ashton Kutcher and Victoria Principal are among other celebrities known to have booked flights to space with the company.

The first Virgin Galactic flight could happen around Christmas this year at the state-owned Spaceport America, just north of Doña Ana County.

Bieber in my hometown! I may pass out!
