    Excerpt from Yahoo! News: 'N Sync Singer Begins NASA Training:
    Mon Aug 26, 1:51 PM ET
    By MARCIA DUNN, AP Aerospace Writer

    CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - NASA welcomed its first celebrity space tourist on Monday: 'N Sync singer Lance Bass, who hopes to clinch a deal with the Russians soon and fly to the international space station in two months.

    <... article continues ...>

    But Bass has yet to come to financial terms with the Russian Space Agency despite months of wrangling, and he's yet to be endorsed by a panel of space station representatives.

    <... article continues ...>

    He would be the youngest person ever in space.

    <... article continues ...>

    Both Tito and Shuttleworth paid out of their own pockets for the one- to 1-week [sic] cruise. Russia's asking price is $20 million.

    Bass is rounding up corporate sponsors, and that's why his negotiations with the Russians are dragging. Almost every week, Russian space officials have insisted that the check is due by the end of the week.
    Let's see here ... He's a mult-millionaire who is so eager to go into space that he's "rounding up corporate sponsors" instead of paying for the trip out of his own pocket.

    I wouldn't mind donating a few bucks to his cause--if I could get contractual assurances that he won't come back.

    I wonder how much the goofy twit is paying NASA for his training......it worries me that we might be footing the bill for this with our own tax money.


    Lance can join Wesley Crusher's "Nerds N Space Club"

    Somebody tell that asshole Bass to pay his own way. He's got millions of girls buying his shitty albums so why does he need corporate sponsorship? It's ironic that he will be flying with the Russians. Does this mean that our corporations are footing the bill for him to fly with another country's space program? What a world we live in.

    Actually, he's flying with the Russians because the Russians use these "tourist trips" as income for their cash-starved space program.

    Don't worry about tax dollars. The training's done in Russia. Technically, Lance'll be a cosmonaught.

    NASA allows this shit only because Russia really wants/needs it to help its space program.
