CAPE CANAVERAL, FL (CN) As is always the case in July, the entire cycling world is focused on the Tour de France. Yet, for many the event has lost some of it’s je ne c’est quoi – mainly due to politicized drama around the issues of performing enhancing drugs. Certainly stateside, this issue is heavily influencing fan following.
Superstar Lance Armstrong is absent from this years Tour amidst criminal investigation. Yet, Lance’s greatness cannot be contested. So when he disappeared last week and some began to circulate disparaging rumors of runaway Lance, many wondered worriedly of his whereabouts.
Yet, Lance’s greatness cannot be contested. Early this morning NASA released the photo seen here, and commented, “In an unprecedented feat of athleticism, Lance Armstrong redefines the term lunar cycle!”
So it seems the controversy surrounding him has led Armstrong to do a little soul-searching. Still, Lance makes history in anything he does. In following in his father’s footsteps, 42 years to-the-day later, Lance Armstrong maintains his superstar status in space!
While this news will undoubtedly impress the cycling world and reposition Lance as its leader, the science community is also taking much notice. No science has yet been presented, but the photo clearly shows Armstrong cycling the moon sans spacesuit. Are offspring of moonwalkers immune to the dangers of exposure on the moon? Did Neil Armstrong mate with an alien?
The feat of lunar cycling undoubtedly makes Lance Armstrong an American hero. Yet some worry that this photo will only increase suspicions of performance enhancing drug use.
