“The Simpsons” psychic powers is out of this world!

The animated comedy series, which has manifested an eerie ability to predict the future over its 32 seasons, is now being credited with foretelling Richard Branson’s flight to space.

Fans of the long-running Fox show noticed that a scene from a 2014 episode bore a startling resemblance to footage released Sunday of the British billionaire floating inside his Virgin Galactic rocket.

The scene from the Season 25 episode “The War of Art” featured an animated Branson leaning back and admiring a painting while hovering aboard a spaceship.

“How can The Simpsons show predict every Damn thing?,” one person posted on Twitter, along with the two images.

“So the @TheSimpsons predicted yet another thing that came true. @richardbranson making his flight into space for the #Unity22 launch,” another user wrote.

Branson’s Virgin Atlantic agreed, tweeting “The Simpsons predicted it…” and a clapping hands emoji.

However, as one user pointed out, Branson founded Virgin Galactic in 2004 with the promise of sending tourists to space, “So the show wasn’t exactly being Nostradamus here.”

While it may not be the show’s most mind-blowing prediction, its cartoonists have been credited with foreseeing a slew major events, including Donald Trump’s presidency and the coronavirus pandemic.
