Spaceweek International Association has named Lance Bass as 2003 Youth Spokesperson for World Space Week and unveiled a worldwide student contest designed to underscore the fundamental importance of math and science education.
“For decades, spaceflight has been the privilege of a select few,” the *NSYNC star said. “And while those pioneers explored new frontiers and inspired us with their amazing achievements, now is the time to open that horizon to everyone. By engaging students in the science and engineering of space flight, we’re empowering a new generation with the skills needed to explore the frontiers of space and achieve their dreams.”
World Space Week is held October 4 – 10 each year and is marked by celebrations in more than 50 nations around the world.
