Bass training could end again soon
Posted: Tue, Oct 1, 2002, 7:57 AM ET (1157 GMT)
Lance Bass (MirCorp) Pop star Lance Bass could be forced to end his training for a future space tourist flight in a week, RIA Novosti reported Monday. Bass restarted training last week at Star City in the hopes of flying on a future Soyuz taxi flight, after his training was stopped in early September for failure to make payments. Russian officials told RIA Novosti that Bass has only paid for one additional week of training, and it was unlikely that Bass would stay beyond that. Bass resumed training with a small hope of being reinstated to the crew of the late October Soyuz flight, but Rosaviakosmos said Monday that only Sergei Zaletin and Frank De Winne would be on that flight. Bass could qualify for a future flight, such as the April 2003 taxi mission.
