Kate Winslet's Ticket To Space: Actress Receives Gift From Groom's Uncle, Richard Branson

We're not sure whether newlyweds Kate Winslet and Ned Rocknroll registered for a $200,000 ticket to space, but the generous gift has been bestowed on Winslet by her groom's uncle, Sir Richard Branson.

According to the Daily Telegraph, the Virgin mogul wanted to thank the "Titanic" actress for saving his mother from a fire at his Necker Island retreat in the British Virgin Islands last year.

Virgin Galactic's two-hour flights to 60 miles above earth are set to launch next year and have already attracted the likes of Ashton Kutcher and Russell Brand.

Incidentally, Rocknroll also works at Virgin, as "Head of Marketing Promotion and Astronaut Experience" (a job title that resembles our career goals at age 10).

In addition to her hot-ticket honeymoon, we presume Winslet is over the moon about longtime pal and colleague Leonardo DiCaprio walking her down the aisle during her secret nuptials in New York.
