From a space wheel 500 miles above the Earth, commander Samuel Merritt (Walter Brooke) and his men (including Eric Fleming and Benson Fong) construct a sleek robot, then receive orders providing their new craft's destination: Mars! But once the spaceship is underway, doubts surface. Merritt questions the audacity of humankind's reach for the heavens. He calls it blasphemy and threatens to destroy the mission. Five-time Oscar. winner George Pal (The War Of The Worlds) produced this adventure rooted in the '50s understanding of space exploration... and heightened by the awareness that no matter how advanced science becomes, human weaknesses remain.
