Astronaut Ray Radar & His Radar Ray

radar2.jpg

Astronaut Radar was one of Sputnik’s space crew. He was the one who told him where to go as they flew. Together the pair flew around the stars and merrily chatted as they landed on Mars. Radar told Astro not to fly so fast, he couldn’t read the map as the meteorites went zooming past. Radar pressed the wrong dial, and despached one of the satellites into the Nile. When he turned the wrong button, he made the engine boost. Within a minute, the Astro rocket headed over the Pacific coast. As they passed over the Atlantic, the rocket quickly became even more electronic. Sparks flew as the smoke clouds grew, the rocket shook and the engine lost another screw ! It wasn’t long before Astro Sputnik started to have stars before his eyes, as around Pluto, the Astro rocket circumnavigized.
