Special effects guru George Pal fashions a surreal 1950s world in which the race to outer space moves at breakneck speed, leading scientists such as Samuel Merritt (Walter Brooke) and his crew to live in a space vessel located between Earth and Mars where they can create a robot that can land on the Red Planet. Their mission is hampered, however, by competing forces who want to thwart their attempt so they can lay claim to success themselves.
