Veteran's Day was established at the end of the First World War to remember those who had served their country and to hope for a future of peace. Just after WW II, Osamu Tezuka created Tetsuwan Atomun (Mighty Atom), a young robot full of courage to face the dangers of modern technology and villians with unconquerable confidence. Called Astro Boy in the United States, the intrepid robot is still a boy at heart after 50 years. Construct and launch your own Astroboy with Estes Rocket engines. Construct Cora with her own substantial powers. Explore the beginnings of the world of Manga.
