Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "Astroblast!" follows the adventures of a crew of space animals who run the Astroblast Space Station - the coolest hangout in the galaxy. The team of animals who run it are the best of friends - Comet, Halley, Sputnik, Radar and Jet - all under the watchful eye of Sal the Octopus. But when you stick five friends with very different personalities in one place - things are bound to get messy. Through it all, the "Astroblast!" crew accept their differences, help one another, make new friends, and discover that getting along is always out of this world. Every day brings a new adventure - big and small - whether it involves getting ready for a surprise birthday party for a Gremulon princess, dealing with demanding dairy-obsessed customers from the Milky Way, making peace between two spaceships of hungry space pirates, or helping a scary-looking, but shy, visitor make friends when no one will sit with him at lunch.
