There is always something happening at Astroblast and everyone on the crew has plenty to learn to keep the community happy and on an even keel.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Clangers is a beloved British series that was originally conceived by Oliver Postgate in 1969 and has been reconceived and invigorated by his son, Daniel Postgate. The show features the Clanger family, small mouse-like creatures that live on Clanger Planet far away from Earth. The members of the family are presented with many unusual challenges that become the center of a dilemma that must be resolved within each episode. Strange visitors arrive out of nowhere and Clangers have to figure out who the visitors really are and why they are on Clanger Planet. Sometimes they need to help or rescue someone who has become lost on the planet. Other times, they are trying to understand outer space: meteors and comets and eclipses of the sun or moon. Each member of the family has a forte, from playing music to knitting or gardening, or inventing equipment that comes in handy for some of the problem-solving that takes place
