She should never let go of this family. Kate Winslet has been given a free ticket to blast into space aboard one of Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic space flights. The actress recently married Branson’s nephew, Ned RocknRoll. And though RocknRoll works part time for Virgin Galactic, Branson actually offered Winslet the ticket after she saved his mother from a fire at his private vacation retreat of Necker Island last year. The tickets are usually sold for nearly $200,000 and over 530 people have already signed up for the space flights.
