Lance Bass Heads To Russia Today For Space Tests
March 21, 2002 – MSNBC reports *NSYNC star Lance Bass is taking a break from the Celebrity 2002 tour to go to Moscow for a medical exam to see if he’s up to the task of journeying into outer space. If he clears the tests and negotiations to get him on board the Soyuz capsule are successful by May, he could become the first celebrity to enter outer space. The reported $20 million would be financed by a reality TV show documenting his mission.
