Lance Bass gets an all-clear on his health...

*N SYNC star LANCE BASS is one step closer to going into space after being given an ‘all clear’ on his health.

The boyband superstar is in talks with a space travel company, about securing a berth onboard the Russian rocket Soyuz on its November mission to the International Space Station.

Dutch based MirCorp have already sent American tycoon Dennis Tito into orbit as the first ever space tourist. His trip cost him a cool $20 million (£14 million), a figure Bass will have to match.

Now, the Reuters news service reports that Bass has been informally told he is physically fit enough to make the journey. The documentation is likely to arrive later today (May 29).

If all goes to plan, he will commence flight training next week in Russia’s Star City. The training is likely to last six months.
