Astro Sputnik and the Snappy Zapper

One night, Astro Sputnik and Ray Radar were having a fight over a meteorite. “I saw it first !”, cried Astro, “No, it’s not, It’s mine !”, shouted Ray Radar back, thinking that they’d never settle the dispute in this eon of space – time. “Let’s settle the matter with a duel, like they did in medieval times”, suggested Astro. “Good idea !” replied Ray Radar (sure that he would win). So Ray Radar went off to get his rocket, before the duel could begin. Astro brought his weapon (really a television remote control which he used as a “zapper”). They took ten steps back, then turned and “WHACK !”. The blast was so supersonic, it shot Venus right off track. Ray Radar took the first shot, then looked to see if his rocket had hit the spot. But it had not. “ZAP !” fired Astro’s zapper, with space age electronicity, (although it usually changed the television channels with ease and utter simplicity).

ZAP The – AP ! Back

Zap the letters A – P back into the words, where Ray Radar’s zapper has zapped them into outer space. Can you see what the words should be and do you know what they mean ? Write a brief definition.
