image for Britney Spears "can be seen from space"
An image taken this morning from 70 miles above the earth.

Dramatic new images taken from the International Space Station seem to show that the troubled singer and some-time actress is clearly visible from space. Just like the Great Wall of China and Windows Vista, other man-made objects large enough to be seen, Britney Spears' massive celebrity status would appear to make her a prominent landmark on the surface of the planet.

Flight Engineer Rex Eckstarr, who is currently aboard the massive orbiting laboratory, said, "Yep, Britney is real easy to see on a clear day from space. She's real bright and stands out from everything else." He continued, "And even with all her troubles, you can still make out the curves and everything. My, she is one hot piece of real estate, yes sir."

The crew of the ISS, who number 7 men and no women, have now been placed in a geo-stationary orbit above the earth for 447 consecutive days. Mental health problems and in-fighting have dogged the crew. Experts suggest that what the men are seeing is not in fact Britney Spears but possibly the Grand Canyon, or even Florida.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
