Saturn Astrojax ...the spectacular night version of Astrojax!
As part of NASA's Toys in Space program, astronauts on the International Space Station played with a set of Astrojax in 2002. Asked whether Astojax works in space, astronaut Peggy Ann Whitson said: "Astrojax are actually a lot of fun here in space too" and went on demonstrating the toy. And it worked indeed! It kept spinning even after it was let go and floated beautifully through space.
The Saturn features the same patented construction with precision machined metal weights as the Plus, but each ball features two bright LEDs (light emitting diode) that create dazzling light patterns when you play. Through an elegant push button control, the LED�s can be switched on and set to either continuous or disco mode. Continuous mode creates patterns reminiscent of beautiful Bengal light effects, while Disco mode is a high speed strobe effect that produces sparkling light traces in space. Each clear ball is a durable polycarbonate shell containing a specially tailored chip inside with two replaceable batteries (included).
Each ball has two LEDs with a different color lights per ball (red, yellow, and green LEDs). Each set of Astrojax comes with an aj-dos (Astrojax Docking Station). This cool holder allows the player to carry or store their Astrojax. Wrap the string neatly around aj-dos and keep in a pocket or even on your belt. Or use the loop-through hole and wear around your neck. The tip of the aj-dos allows the player to switch the lights between off, continuous mode, and disco mode. Choose from three different colored bands including orange, green, and purple/pink.
