In a stunning exhibition of oblivious celebrity self-absorption and utter ignorance of science and technology as well as demonstrating a complete disregard of human decency, 'N Sync's Lance Bass is still under the impression he can win a seat this October aboard a Soyuz spacecraft for a ride to the International Space Station. Before you click on the link, be wary of the following mistatements of fact, which may or may not be attributal to gossip columnist Friedman: • Lance cannot go to the Moon; currently, no one can. • A "Russian space shuttle"? Well, the Soyuz can and does "shuttle" people to and from orbit. But the true Russian space shuttle, the Buran, never achieved operational status. The bird, instead, lies in tragic ruin. • So Bass thinks the Russians can spare a desperately needed Soyuz TMA spacecraft for his little joyride when every such vehicle is now needed to keep a contingency crew aboard the ISS? Once the pared-down Expedition Seven crew sets up shop this May, the astronauts will have their hands full simply maintaining this priceless asset's viability. • Isn't it a little too soon after the STS-107 tragedy even to be making such moronic statements to gossip columnists? Does Bass have any awareness beyond self-gratification? Does he even read, say, newspapers? Oh, but now I'm getting mean. Idiocy.
