It is the dawn of the space age. A space probe comes back with the news of another planet in an orbit opposite of earth. Due to the fact that security was compromised, we have to hurry-up and check it out with a manned probe. We send the top astronaut Colonel Glenn Ross (Roy Thinnes) and top scientist John Kane (Ian Hendry) on a three week mission to check it out. Instead, they return after three weeks.
Why did they turn back?
What is upsetting Colonel Glenn Ross?
Of course, we know the answer but it is fun watching the characters discover the secret.
The clothing and props naturally reflect a 1960's concept of the future. The space ship models look a little hokey but when you get used to it, the story is fun and well acted. This movie will make a good addition to you cultural history collection.
