Astro Captain Astro In Cyberspace

alien-6.jpg

When Astro Captain Astro zoomed off into outer cyberspace,

There were sparks flying all over the place.

Astro Captain Astro really was such a cyber – Astro whizz,

That soon even the hole in the ozone payer started to fizz.

Astro Captain Astro was a supersonic cyberspace maestro,

And on his way around the planets,

His cyber rocket never went on a go – slow.

When Astro Captain Astro put his space buggy into reverse,

Two hundred stars illuminated, as he flew off into the universe.

Astro Captain Astro bumped into a meteorite or two,

As he circled the planets, at a speed of two thousand two.

Astro Captain Astro didn’t really much care,

If he picked up moondust, as he flew throughout the air.

The moondust made his sneeze much more,

And so his rocket zoomed faster off the floor.

Astro Captain Astro slipped on Saturn’s rings …

His cyberspace Astro buggy buzzed so much,

The Martians on Mars started to sing the swing.

The universe explorer’s dials span quicker than the Moon,

With much more mass than Jupiter …

He’d circumnavigated around the internet very soon.

He’d practised for years in the simulator,

Just to be this good a navigator !

alien-6.jpg The Siderite Meteorite Made of Chalybite

When Astro Captain’s Astro rocket was hit by a meteorite, it zoomed sidewards so that Astro Captain’s Astro rocket’s side lights did not work properly. The bulbs flickered, flashed … and no longer worked properly any more, when Captain Astro’s rocket crashed. He could no longer see where he was meant to be, on the other side of the galaxy. As the light disapppeared, so did some of the letters in his science fiction mapbook “Guide to Outer Cyberspace”. Can you help ? Add “side” to these words to complete the spellings. On which side should the side be ?

_____ ways _____

_____ lights _____ 

_____ one – _____

_____ glance ____ 

_____ out _____ 

_____ in _____

_____ look _____ 

alien-6.jpg The Out of Sight Megabite
