The Solar Academy has prepared a huge rally for old space rovers and invites everyone to come down and take a ride in some proper old-school machinery!
Dug up from layers of rubble and caked in space dust, pulled out of craters and dunes, pieced back together and given a clean and shine, the transport buggies have been given a new lease of life and will be the centrepiece of the event. You’ll be able to get to know their history and even go for a ride in some of the restored machines.
One of the rovers is even driven by solar power. ‘This old technology was indeed good for a moment,’ underlines one of the rally’s organisers. ‘The Earthlings even managed to do a good job,’ says Professor Astral. ‘These unmanned research vehicles may have been innovative, but scientists didn’t take one thing into account when sending these machines into space: us! When we see such a rover taking samples, we just pick them up and take them home.’
The ingenuity of our residents knows no bounds. In a picture sent in by one of our readers you can see how this quirky construction can make life easier for young parents. You can see this vehicle as well as many others at the Solar Academy from tomorrow.
The Milky Way is not just made up of billions of stars, it also hosts the largest golf course in the universe. With 400 billion holes to play in just 24 hours, the competition is proper sporting madness which pulls in thousands of contestants.
After last year’s wrist injury, no-one would have believed in the return of pro golfer Total Eclipse, but he is now ready to rock and roll after taking in the hot springs on Neptune over the past months. ‘I’m as good as new, and as a bonus my skin complexion is simply awesome!’ says Eclipse. Health is one thing, but training is another matter altogether.
Fans have been asking themselves the question whether such a long break from the sport will have knocked the star out of balance. ‘He can knock himself out as far as I’m concerned,’ punned Total Eclipse’s arch-rival Black Orbit, who has been training hard ahead of the Milky Way Pro-Am. ‘I’ve spent the last weeks on planet Earth and have studying the effects of gravity. Now I know how to get the ball in the hole much faster!’ boasts Orbit.
‘He’s really managed to up his game,’ Orbit’s veteran trainer Dave Driver has said. ‘Thanks to defying our laws of physics and implementing gravitational tactics thanks his mind-bending techniques, his shots have become incredibly precise’.
‘Now the ball doesn’t just fly around in the air for hours, but lands directly where it should: in the hole,’ underlined Driver.
Precision or force? Gravity or weightlessness? We’ll find out the answer very soon once the Master of the Universe Golf Cup tees off.
