The bonus materials contain small parts. Be careful not to swallow them accidentally as you may choke - The
materials contain sharp objects and thin metal plates. Please handle them carefully to avoid injuries.
If you misuse the battery, it can overheat, become damaged, and leak its content. Thus, please note the following:
Do not use batteries other than manganese, alkali batteries. Do not mix and use old and new or different types of
batteries together. *Please place the batteries in the appropriate + and - direction. *After the experiment, turn the
switch off and pull out the battery. *Do not intentionally short-circuit, re-charge, disassemble, apply heat to, or
incinerate the battery.
For your safety, please follow the assembly and operating instructions in this magazine. Also, do not use any bonus
items that are damaged or deformed during the experiment. After the experiment, keep the items away from children.
You will need the inside
box to play. Be careful
not to discard the box.

motion
The sound sensor senses
sound (vibration of the
air) and sends electrical
signal to the control
board. The control board
reverses the rotational
direction of the motor.
Two gears (front and
back) moves the body
assembly.
In this diagram, the front gear
turns clockwise when the UFO is
running. The same gear turns
counterclockwise when the Alien
is turning. The front and back
gears are connected by a geared
shaft, so they always turn in the
opposite direction to each other.
The horizontal gear spins
the body assembly.
When the body assembly
rises up, this gear engages
the teeth cut on the inside
rim of the tower. The body
assembly starts turning.
The arrows
indicate the
direction of
gear rotation
when the UFO
is turning.
The sound sensor can detect more than sounds!
A sound sensor senses various types of vibration including a sound
(vibration of the air). This is why the UFO switches the modes when the
UFO is shaken or blown by winds.
* Run the UFO on a flat and smooth surface.
When the alien is turning,
these gears are detached.
The motor's reversed
rotation will not cause the
UFO to run backward.

When the UFO runs, the
tires are on the ground.
When the Alien Turns, the
tires are lifted in the air.

Super Remote Control
The Views
from
Mars Probes
Find Traces of lives and
water activity on Mars!
In 1996, researchers discovered a small tube
like object in a meteor that was considered
to have come from Mars. (The meteor was
found in 1984 in the Antarctic) We haven't
yet determined if this is a fossilized life form.
One of the important missions of the Mars
exploration is to find out if there are/were
life forms and if there are/were water
existing to support organic life forms.
The Sound Control UFO is remotely controlled by
sound waves. The remote control technology is widely
used in space exploration missions. Mars exploration is
one of them. NASA operates their space probes on
Mars remotely from Earth.
Cooperation=Akira Sasaki, National Observatory
The tube type object is very small. It's about 20-100 nm
(nm is 1/1000,000,000 of 1m)
Two Rovers on Mars

In 2003, NASA successfully
landed two space rovers “Spirit"
and “Opportunity” on Mars.
These rovers are equipped with
cameras, robotic arms, and
various observation devices.
The researched data of the soil,
the rocks, the atmosphere, and
the weather patterns are
transmitted to Earth through
antennae.

“Phoenix”
The newest probe,
looks for water on Mars!!
Phoenix was launched on August 4th, 2007 and
landed near Mars northern polar region on May
25th 2008. It researched the underground ice
in the polar region and the possibility of water
existence. See the details in page 18.
From Earth to Mars!!
Control over several hundred
million km.
The distance between Mars and Earth is approximately 400
million km at the furthest. It is approximately 55 million km
when Mars is nearest to Earth. Phoenix is controlled directly
from Earth for the most of the time. When a large amount
of information needs to be transmitted, the satellite orbiting
Mars, “Odyssey”, relays the transmission.

information between the
probes on Mars and Earth.

4. Look up at Martian Sunset!
On May 19th, 2005, Spirit took an image
of Martian sunset. At sunset, sun light
travels the atmosphere for a long
distance. On Earth, the air particles
scatter blue light first, thus red light
reaches near surface. We see the reddish
sunset on Earth. To the contrary, on Mars,
the atmosphere is thin and packed with
dust particles. Dust particles scatter red
light and blue light reaches surface. Thus,
Mars sunset has bluish color.

possible water activity in the past.

3. Martian Dessert Research!
On August 10th, 2004, Opportunity went
in the desert inside the Endurance Crater
for research. Once in, there was a
possibility that the rover's wheels may be
caught by the sand and not be able to
come out of it. NASA simulated
maneuvering of the same type rover in
the sand on Earth.
In 2008, to pass the winter,
Spirit moved to Home Plate
to continue the research.

Phoenix at the time

June 15th, 2008, Phoenix dug the soil at the northern polar
region and found ice like objects (indicated by the red circle)
This object was gone in the picture taken four days later on
June 19th. It suggests that the ice may have evaporated. Later
in July, the analysis of soil sample verified that there are some
trace of water in the soil.

If there is water on Mars, there is a possibility that
some sort of life form had existed in the past.
Martian atmosphere is
consisted of mostly
NASA/JPL
carbon dioxide at the
moment. It is not suitable
for humans to live on
Mars. However, if there is
an access to water on
Mars, we can recreate
Mars atmosphere to be
suitable to human beings.
