In this scene, we meet Middletown's resident astronaut, who is currently in outer space.  During the transition into outpace we hear the sounds of a wind tunnel, accompanied with the recordings of the electromagnetic waves of the planets.  This abruptly stops, and we hear the beeps of the astronaut's space ship, as well as the sounds of space.
