London: Singer Katy Perry is "really excited" about the prospect of heading into space with her husband Russell Brand as she counts down the days until the couple`s shuttle trip.

The "I Kissed a Girl" hitmaker bought her funnyman partner a seat on one of Richard Branson`s Virgin Galactic space tourism flights for his 35th birthday last year and she is planning to go with him.

The couple has yet to book a date for the experience because of their busy schedules, but Perry is already dreaming about the once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

"I`m so into extraterrestrial stuff... It`s very difficult for me to look up into the sky in the middle of the night and not think that our planet is one of... a bajillion (sic). It`s really, really small. And Russell and I are interested in anything extraterrestrial. I mean, we`re going to space! We`re really excited," contactmusic.com quoted her as saying.

"There`s a group of people that work with Richard Branson, and he does the Virgin flights, and for Russell`s birthday, I got him a flight to space. Because I just thought, `What else can I give this man? He`s had every experience in the world, but not a trip to space," she said.
