You no longer have to be an astronaut to go to space -- but you do need a good chunk of money. Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Katy Perry and Tom Hanks will be among the first generation of "space tourists," paying $200,000 for a spot on one of Virgin Galactic's private space flights. CEO Richard Branson has been selling tickets to his zero-gravity experience since 2007, and according to New York magazine, those flights are happening very soon. It won't be long now before some of our favorite celebrities are flying the friendly stars -- and some fans are even paying big bucks (think: $1.5M) to ride alongside the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio. Which got us thinking -- wouldn't this be a convenient way to get rid of our least favorite celebrities? Here are 5 famous people we wouldn't mind sending to space -- permanently.
Donald Trump - He was always obnoxious, and ever since he started getting into politics and celebrity gossip, he's been unbearable. If he's so determined to rule the world, let's find him another one. Far, far away.
Farrah Abraham - We're done with the Teen Mom star's petulant, entitled attitude and her refusal to take responsibility for anything. (She's still trying to convince the world that she made a sex tape with a porn star by accident.) Maybe spending some time in zero gravity will bring her down to Earth.
Chris Brown - He dances really well, but that doesn't change the fact that the women of the world would be better off without him.
Jesse James - We know he's newly married, so we'll give him a probation period. But the second he cheats on Alexis DeJoria, he's going on the shuttle.
Seth MacFarlane - He's tolerable as a cartoon voice, and he wasn't the worst Oscar host, but we've seen enough smarmy smirking from this guy for one lifetime. You know where they'll never get sick of "We Saw Your Boobs" song? Space.
Actually, we're not the first people to fantasize about putting obnoxious celebrities on a one-way rocket to the sun. In a 1999 Simpsons Halloween episode, Bart and Homer end up stuck on such a flight, along with Courtney Love, Paulie Shore, and Rosie O'Donnell. Wonder if Richard Branson's seen it? If not, here's the clip!
