Justin Bieber revealed on Wednesday that he’s set to take off on Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic, a suborbital flight that travels 60 miles above Earth.

Branson tweeted the news, and Bieber then re-tweeted him:

Great to hear @justinbieber & @scooterbraun are latest @virgingalactic future astronauts. Congrats, see you up there!

Bieber's manager Scooter Braun was quick to respond, tweeting:

And even Bieber responded to the news by writing:

Bieber has always been interested in space exploration, even saying he wants  to do a concert there — an idea which NASA thinks is possible.

But the 19-year-old isn't the first star to want to go to space. Leonardo DiCaprio and  Ashton Kutcher have also purchased $250,000 tickets  on Virgin Galactic.

Here's what we imagine Bieber in space will look like:
