Former N*Sync singer Lance Bass may very well become the first openly gay man to visit space, according to Business Insider.The Finding Prince Charming host revealed that, while “there’s no specific date” in the diary, there are plans for him to travel to the final frontier at some point in the future.

He told Business Insider: “Things keep getting delayed and delayed. But eventually in the next five to 10 years, I would say that once we’re really flying to space a lot more that I’ll be able to take that mission.”

The 37-year-old has already undertaken some space training, including taking part in Space Adventures on one of its scheduled Zero-Gravity training flights in 2002, to help realise his childhood dreams. “When I was a kid, my first launch my grandfather took me to when I was probably eight years old and I was just addicted since then,” he explained.

“I went to space camp. I loved everything about it. I wanted to go to school for space engineering, so I could become an astronaut. And then, my life detoured into music for a little bit.”

Hopefully the singer won’t have to wait too long to say Bye, Bye, Bye to planet earth.
