Lance Bass to Continue to Plague Earth's Surface

thepooleboy writes "Looks like N'Sync member Lance Bass is NOT going to be shot into space! Yahoo News reports that Rosaviakosmos has not begun talks with Bass or MirCorp. "[Bass' flight] is just an advertising stunt, I can promise you," Spokesman Sergei Gorbunov said. "This is better advertising than he could ever pay for." Good! I'm glad that no cheezy teen pop videos will be staged on the ISS. At least not in the near future..."

Personally, I think that there people that it would be worth sending into space.

Although there is the question of who should we send to stay, and who gets to come back. Sending certain overly rich folks such as Bill Gates or Michael Jackson to space to stay only invites comparison to certain old Justin Powers tv episodes (from the series that never existed, yet)

Any nominations for people to send to space and leave there? People to send to space and return for the benefit of mankind?

Send Up Rich People, Get Space Commercialization (5, Insightful)

Somnus (46089) | more than 12 years ago | (#3057691)


If wealthy folks want to shell out big $$ to shoot themselves up into space, better for us -- they are voluntarily subsidizing manned space flight, and by extension space research, for the benefit of mankind. This is one step towards commercializing (and thereby individualizing) space development.

Re:Send Up Rich People, Get Space Commercializatio (1)

Commienst (102745) | more than 12 years ago | (#3057708)

Last time I checked, just about everybody here was 100% for space-tourism. Shooting Lance's jiggy ass up there is going to promote that just as much as it is his crappy band. Just be thankful that he wasn't going to be the first. Personally, I'd love to see as many tourists up there as we can get with an orbiting Hilton to house them all.

A person who thinks his money and publicity hype puts him above listening REAL CAREFULLY to the "how to stay alive in space" lectures and figures that the spacemen around him will keep him safe if he's in REAL trouble because he is famous and thinks he knows something because he watches a lot of sci-fi movies actually isn't somebody we want going into space to further space tourism.

At the current primitive state of space technology, the classic "tourist fuckup due to inattention" means death. In an emergency, our brave, intrepid astronauts will do their best, but will be too busy trying to save their own asses to spare much time for a pop star they detest. (if they don't, they aren't smart enough to have been selected for the station to begin with)

Though if he decides he can safely go for a space walk without a space suit because it would be real kewl and anyone gets video footage, I hope it gets posted on the Web and broadcast. THAT would be real entertainment.

Of course, I am not quite sure where all the animosity comes from. I will be the first to cry out against N'Sync and all that Jedi mumbo jumbo that Lucas tried to pull. Bass himself seems to be pretty smart and articulate, though (from what I saw when he was on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire way back when it was fun to watch at a bar with friends with lots of beer). Of course, anyone talking with Regis Philbin would probably seem pretty smart in comparison. Now that I think about it, not the best way to judge someone.

why is this on slashdot? i bet its more about the fact that people are paying to go into space that have traditionally not been able to go there that lance bass. that millionaire guy started the ball rolling on commercially bought space flights, and to hear now mainstream advertising is taking a interest and part in utilizing the space program for its needs is a new push in the mix of technology and advertising IS news. The fact the writer needs to attack Lance Bass as 'not his cup of tea' so that no masculinity points are lost is pretty OT.

It never fails to ammuse me how much people tend to attack nsync when these people are clearly not the intended audience.

if you like to talk about entertainment merit for their audience, you couldnt even start to muster up some sort of attack in the face of the overwhelming numbers supporting them. sales?...please! marketing prowess of their management?.... you are reading about them now.

If all else fails, he'll be able to get on the launch wit h the personnel officers, public relations executives, management consultants, and telephone sanitizers.

Bogus quote? (3, Insightful)

"[Bass' flight] is just an advertising stunt, I can promise you," Spokesman Sergei Gorbunov said. "This is better advertising than he could ever pay for."

Where did that quote come from? I didn't see that anywhere in the Yahoo news article. And according to the article I read about this the other day [msnbc.com] , nothing was ever said about it begin a done deal.

If you're ever privaledged enough to be able to even SAY you want to TRY go to space on a partcular space flight, why should any of us put you down for it? It's only a step forward towards average Joe being able to take space flights, not a step backward.

Here [moscowtimes.ru] is the original article in the Moscow Times where the quote came from.

I vote that he Should be selected to travel to space under a strict set of conditions. First, No media show when he leaves. Second, ALL the other members of the band should be allowed to go. Third, They all must be ejected, Stanley Kubrick style, into deep space. Forth, No return flight! :)

Breakup? (0)

Does this mean that N'SYNC isn't going to break up during the space trip?

Russia, get that man in space right now! (Just don't bring him back!)

What? (-1, Offtopic)

How the fuck is this article related to "News for Nerds. Stuff that matters"? As soon as I finish this post, I'm going to find out who okay'd this to be posted and build a shrine to their demise. It better not be that damned Jon Katz...

In Space, no one can hear N'Synch. . . . (5, Funny)

. . .and now we take you to the ISS, sometime in the future. . . .



(Lance Bass): Excuse me, Mister Astronaut, but after all this Tang(tm), I gotta whizz something awful. Where's the john up here ???

(Astronaut): Certainly.... go through that round hatch, close it, and spin the wheel. When the light turns red, press the big red button on the wall, and the door will open to the waste disposal area. . . .

(a minute goes by)

(outside view) Lance Bass's corpse floating in vacuum



And people think spending money on the ISS is a waste (evil grin)

You want to get the Earth destroyed? (5, Funny)

Come on people, think this one through!

We are already under a strict "No Contact" ban in the Galactic Confederation - we go shooting NSync members into space and we will downgraded from "Not ready for contact" to "Dangerous - destroy immediately".

Perhaps in stead we could convice him to be the first man to land on the sun!

They could stage their new video there called "flash fry"
