Jet and the gang have a fun night planned with a sleepover in Jet’s backyard, mini-golf, and star-gazing—after all, it’s the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing! When Jet reveals that he’s built a brand-new super saucer that can take all the kids (and Sunspot) to the Moon, they HAVE to test it out.

Ready Jet Go!: One Small Step airs Monday, June 17 at 7:00 a.m., and repeats at 3:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. on WKAR-HD 23.1.

The overarching goal of READY JET GO! is to spark children’s inherent excitement about science, technology and astronomy, telling stories that feature characters learning about space in a way that appeals to, and is accessible by, young children. The comedy and music help kids learn a variety of physical science concepts, such as gravity, tides and moon phases. At the heart of every episode is a basic, kid-friendly question about outer space or Earth science. In the show, the characters often use a scientific method to find the answers to their questions.
