Flight to Mars 1951 with Marguerite Chapman [BluRay 720p] [Sci-fi] [Full Movie]

so mars they’ll be leaving day after tomorrow i wonder if they’ll make it and what they’ll find if they do life maybe life of some sort perhaps someday we’ll have a telescope powerful enough to see that far dr lane that’s the highest priority secret message we’ve ever had in the pentagon and we’ve had some how does it feel to be the head of a project as immense as this one truthfully it’s a little terrifying uh but you mustn’t print that steve well i should think it would be terrifying i know enough about rocket propulsion to believe there’s an outside chance you make it there but aren’t you worried about getting back i used to climb the swiss alps our greatest ambition then was to climb the highest possible peak we worried later about getting back can i print that doctor if you wish well steve this is a plum assignment for you making a trip of this sort merely to report what you see yep i’m the only one going who isn’t a scientist you deserve it you made a wonderful reputation as a war correspondent you’ve been reading the jacket cover of my last book dr lane i once heard of a man who climbed a higher mountain than anyone else alive but he was never able to get down again what’s left of him is still up there the point is steve he made it where you going pre-flight interviews with everybody making the trip i think i’ve gotten as much from dr wayne as he’s going to give oh i’ll give you the scientific reasons why i wanted to i’m the nun scientist remember doctor now i want to write about the personal human reasons why a man would risk death to go out into space you’ve given me yours i gather you don’t think they’re too good i’m on my way to see jim barker maybe your chief engineer has a different reason for wanting to go well i’m sure he must have steve i’m a little puzzled you’re going to write this all up but how are you going to file a story on mars to be printed back here well general i’m afraid i can’t give you the answer to that one yet but don’t forget while in route we’re going to drop these self-propelled space cylinders aimed at earth they should land here we’ll be waiting for them see you tomorrow at the takeoff go on and so the exact time and place of the takeoff will remain a closely guarded secret as to the immediate reactions to the sensational announcement congress is demanding to know why a knowledge of so stupendous and undertaking has been kept so long from the public several senators have even questioned the advisability of the very project

itself the feeling expressed by many of them whether we should stay where we are government officials were quick to label these remarks as isolationists here we go again well let’s get on with the interview you know if we make it both the isolationists and the interventionists will take the vows wait a minute you said if we make it tell me jim what do you really think our chances are of getting there well everything we know about astronomy propulsion and rocket navigation tells us that we will yeah but there’s a lot we don’t know there’s a whole universe out there steve the totally unknown beyond anyone’s comprehension we try to figure it out when we’re kids but we never can yeah yeah let me see if i can’t frame my elite article featuring you you see i want to accent the human terms about jim barker chief engineer whose genius was largely responsible for the construction of the rocket the man with a dream who couldn’t live or think or breathe anything else who worked and planned for years to make this expedition possible the man with a skylight in his baltimore apartment so he could sleep under the stars you make it sound poetic oh how are you carol oh carol i’d like you to meet steve abbott he’s the newspaper man that’s going on on the trip with us uh steve this is carol stafford how do you do hello uh what are you doing here carol we had a date tonight jim oh he held me up oh yes i can see you’re all dressed to go out a drink no i understand you wanted to interview me mr abbott well you couldn’t have picked a better time i’m just in the mood to tell the story of my life father was a physicist taught her a lot she’s a smart girl i certainly am she learned spaceship engineering in only three years spending each day right at the elbow of mr jimbock mr abbott do you think three years is too long to spend at somebody’s opal steve call me steve i wasn’t gonna let her take a trip like this but uh she learned so much he became indispensable i couldn’t replace it so you see mr abbott what you’re looking at is an indispensable scientific unit the first assistant to the pilot of a rocket ship i know you have the whole story i sure have professor william jackson is here sir tell him to come in professor be right with you i have only five minutes there waiting to take me to a television broadcast i thought i was handling public relations look here i don’t even know you i take the time and trouble to come to your hotel because i haven’t been able to catch up with you it was agreed that none of us were to appear on radio or tv because once we start giving out interviews at random and for commercial games world has a right to my opinions and observations that’s why i was invited on this trip to make observations gather geological chemical astronomical data look professor jackson you’re a famous man one of the outstanding scholars of our time that’s why you’re coming with us but there’ll be no speeches on tv hello get me dr lane at the radcliffe i am considered a scholar but unfortunately that hasn’t made me rich on the contrary it’s left me quite poor i’m leaving behind an ailing wife a daughter whose husband was killed in the war two young grandchildren but just a minute doctor i was to be given three thousand dollars for my appearance on television i wanted to leave it with them oh sorry doctor as i wanted to talk to you but it isn’t important it can wait yeah see you later if you do a good job on tv it’ll save me the trouble of writing it so go ahead thank you see you tonight when the police escort picks us up [Applause]

goodbye come on we’ll watch the takeoff well i guess that about does it good luck sir thank you only five of us seems lonely already well no matter how much weight we could carry i would like to last a dozen more people hey what happens when the rocket finally levels off do we walk on the walls no no our gyro mechanism keeps this cabin vertical at all times when we’re in horizontal flight that hatch there will lead to the tail sections you better go there and lie down and strap yourself in all right carol turn on the oxygen pressure we take off oxygen okay control tower barker crawling hello jim this is it in the control tower check my radio give me a reading abel george baker ready over check able george baker ready it’s okay thanks ed we’re ready for takeoff ground clear all ready for takeoff and jim good luck fella thanks ed i’ll be seeing you i hope are you ready dr lane all ready ten seconds to take off nine eight seven six five four three two one so [Applause] contact we’re ready general that’s you steve you’ve been out in space two days now got anything to report sure have big news carol stafford floated up to the top of the rocket she kept bumping her head until we got the magnetic field stabilizer to equalize the gravitational pull and how do you like those for big words here’s jim barker we’ll give you the official rundown everything’s going according to schedule at the present rate we should be out of the orbit of the moon in 10 or 12 hours after that it should be clear sailing anything else over jim the press association here wants to know whether we’ll get some pictures to go with steve abbott’s stories over we’ll launch our first space cylinder in 24 hours there’ll be photographs and observations in that if we lose radio contact steve can send all his stuff in the cylinder anything else over that’s all for now jim over okay rocket ship m-a-r-s signing off for now so long i’m glad we don’t have to send all the technical meter readings it was a good idea you had doctor of having them transmitted automatically by radio and i think it’d be a good idea if you’ve got a little rest jim you’ve been there ever since takeoff well i kind of hate to leave don’t be heroic jim two days without a break is too long dr lane and i’ll take over well keep

your eye on the gravitational indicator if there’s any variation call go on jim remember i helped to design that indicator i guess i must be tired i’ll see you later mother earth looks mighty good from here [Applause] close enough to the man in the moon to talk to him if you do talk to him be careful what you say the moon could be a deadly menace to us and a shifting direction five degrees gravitational pull the moon we’ll have to use power to pull out everybody take your stations where’s jackson professor jackson coming all right carol oppression pressure okay you ready here we go so well i did it all right carol cut the pressure all you have to do is ask well at least we won’t land on the moon well it’s finally happened we’ve lost contact with the rocket ship you’d better inform the general your family professor my two grandchildren they’re beautiful i often wish i’d married and had a family but astronomy and engineering have taken up almost all of my life my life’s been sheltered but full things i’ve learned i’ve passed on to others you talk as if you were already dead you really believe we’re going to come back sure i do personally i feel this rocket is my coffin never would have expected that attitude from you as long as we remain alive i’ll contribute all that i know to the success of the expedition in the meantime professor you’re contributing an awful lot of gloom he’s contributed more than any of us a real wife a home two lovely grandchildren i trade ten trips to mars for that and you shouldn’t have come along carol jim barker engineering genius jim skip it it’s just that being confined like this has gotten on my nerves mine too you listening carol to what i think that you were a prize package is this for jim’s benefit and very feminine he likes you i sure do mr engineer i don’t have to look in the test tube to find out let’s cut out this bickering i am not victory nice try but it didn’t get up thanks eddie well the earth seems so big when you’re on it and from out here so small and nothing it’s like closing your eyes in the dark suddenly there you are alone with your soul you’re homesick steve no professor i haven’t gotten home sometimes i wonder who i am who any of us are there was once a theory advance that the universe is a living giant being and that we as human beings made in its image are miniature universes in ourselves containing millions of corpses the components of each corpuscle imagine themselves to be in a complete world of their own though they are aware of the universe of other worlds around them oh that’s fantastic

is it i wonder we understand so very little really if space is limitless and endless then don’t you see the opposite must be true too smallness never ends either but continues being tinier and tinier just as the enormity of the universe becomes more and more enormous doctor you’re giving me the creeps what happens to us when we die the whole universe dies just as the universe in which we ourselves live may someday be no more but there are endless universes beyond our own i know the theory but it makes this trip seem small and futile if we’re simply going from one corpuscle and some giant being to another what will we find crossing over may provide some of the answers to the man has wanted to know since the beginning of time if so we’ll be swallowed in space and forgotten holy mackerel what’s this come here quick what is it i don’t know it looks as though the earth’s being bombarded it isn’t though it’s a strong meteors they’re traveling at tremendous speed when they reach the atmosphere around the earth the friction makes them explode and disintegrate we’ve all seen such fragments on summer nights most people call them shooting stars tell me doctor are we apt to run into such a storm out here it’s possible no contact sir not for 48 hours now from this point on i’m afraid we’ll have to depend on their space cylinders mars jim what’s the timing position have you finished with those computations for jettisoning this space cylinder almost just a second we are now at approximately two degrees s 400 x 102 solar time well that’s about all there is to gold i hope the homing device works i’d hate to have this land in the middle of the sahara desert didn’t steve have something to grow oh yes would you mind seeing if steve’s material is ready yet of course professor everything’s in the space cylinder but your notes i wouldn’t want to hold up a space cylinder but if the last paragraph isn’t up to my usual high standard it’ll be your fault for rushing me how do you find so much to write about isn’t easy this trip’s getting a little monotonous too monotonous do you feel that bitter about him i don’t know what you mean a little revenge that ought to huh him good and mad [Applause] i don’t intend to tell him how can you make a guy jealous if he doesn’t know about it it’s possible well glad to have been of service what’s the matter with you for a ladies scientist you aren’t very objective no i guess i haven’t been next time you get sore adam call on me anytime you shouldn’t wait till the last minute

before getting your notes today it’s a big hurry we plenty of time and space i hope the homing apparatus on this cylinder functions properly so what was that do you have any trouble getting that space cylinder off why no of course not all right everybody take your stations wrap yourselves in i have to give her full speed ready here goes apparently emergency lights right is everybody all right i think we’re all clear now but we’re considerably off course jim you better check the ship for damage and carol and i’ll plot the course steve you and the professor check the tail section for any possible damage especially the wires and cables i’ll check for it and see what i can find there [Applause] [Applause] steve come here have you found a break yes and something worse take a look our landing gear got our radio batteries too that’s what cut the cable probably shorted can’t be fixed i think jim can fix the cable all right but not the batteries in that shaft not a chance in the world how we land maybe we won’t well folks we have a real problem the landing gear we depended on is now useless we’re going to have to crash land can’t we use the jets to ease us down we may have to eat into our fuel supply better to use some of that to find a favorable landing spot you have to make a choice we can make it back to earth and attempt to landing there or we can try landing on mars the choice is up to you well i’m pretty fond of the world myself even if it’s only a little core puzzle if we get back maybe we can make another trip how much chance of that if anything it would discourage future flights assuming anyone does survive on mars what will he be able to do will he be able to report back what he finds there’s a remote possibility the atomic power head might not have been damaged too much to get off a space cylinder it doesn’t look very promising either way but if there’s any chance of sending back any data or information about mars i’m in favor of going on after all that was the object of our flight our survival is of secondary importance we can be on mars within 24 hours at least that’s the shorter trip if that’s an advantage under the circumstances we’re almost at the top of that mountain you want to decline what do you think carol well it doesn’t look like we’re going to come out alive either way but after all we did set out to do

something it says it for me i knew that it would okay i’ll make it unanimous good i’m glad we’re all together in spirit too jim what’s your plan well i can’t tell yet not till i see the terrain we’ll have to use our jets to look around but it’ll be rough at best well it’s in your hands [Applause] all right strap yourselves in what about you jim forget about me see a place to land we make it we may be able to take off all right hang on he’s coming around now nothing serious don’t tell me we made it the concussion of our crash must have caused the avalanche the snow’s covering us completely oh no it hasn’t look over here they look like chimneys they’re regularly spaced they may be creatures come on let’s go out have a look at them are you i just feel a little short of breath well no we’d better put on our oxygen masks [Applause] so [Applause] [Applause] it’s made of stone or pipe and very well made too obviously by civilized creatures of some sort but it’s very old very maybe the race is extinct now that’s being a little pessimistic professor no no professor jackson may be right we know that ages ago mars was a much warmer planet in cooling off it lost much of its atmosphere if people did live here may well be that the change killed them off they don’t seem to serve any purpose do they they may have been erected as some sort of religious symbols like the great stones the druids erected at stonehenge or the pyramids in egypt let’s follow them along and see if there’s any changing we have been expecting you expecting us you you speak english for many years we have picked up your radio broadcasts and deciphered them many of us have even learned to speak some of your languages i am icron president of our council which rules this planet yeah happy to meet you and honored by the presence of your imminence you say you pick up our broadcast yes your first two cylinders drive back on earth safely since then they have lost contact with you and there is a worldwide vigil awaiting news of your party can we get through to them no although for years we have been able to receive broadcasts we are still unable to send them our best efforts have been reported by earthman only as faint signals coming from mars

you will come with us now you may do the same you won’t need them anymore hey this thing’s moving yes our cities are underground this is magnificent when you get your air in life they make them there is a mineral called corium in which we extract hydrogen and oxygen you’ll find that we live rather well it’s a masterpiece of understatement i think the council is waiting you will find we have much in common as you have no doubt already observed we owe our continued existence here to science all of our facilities will be placed at your disposal thank you you made us feel very welcome and i don’t think that scientists have ever had a richer field to explore as you know we have tried interplanetary flights though for all our science we have had no success such as this i am very much interested in what you have done tell me this atomic power which i have heard so much about in broadcast from your world just a moment i come we can exchange questions and answers endlessly there’d be time for that now i suggest that our visitors be permitted to rest and refresh themselves this is tillamar our senior advisor and former chief of our council terrace will show you to your dwelling and after you have had time to adjust yourselves we will talk further thank you this is where you will live your sleeping rooms and other quarters are on either side thank you what i want to see is the kitchen the kitchen yes where food is prepared oh we don’t have kitchen we call it the food laboratory and we have a large one for each district you order your food and it is delivered ready to be served this is a woman’s paradise as a matter of fact i assumed you might be hungry and ordered some things for you they should be here by now everything is here ready to be when you finished you just put everything back close it up and press this button that’s all there is to it no dishwashing well that’s taken care of mechanically mars i love you a tailor will be here to measure you for your wardrobe you will be needing clothes of course you mean um you can have more like those if you wish no no we wouldn’t think of it but on mars do as the martians do we find these very comfortable well i’ll leave you now i know you’re tired and hungry if you want me you can reach me over the speaker well if no one objects i think i’ll start setting out the food yeah i’ll help you i can hardly wait to see their chemical laboratories what a remarkable place the scientific skills and techniques of these people are truly incredible a man could spend years doing research here and you were all set to die you were talking about mars being the top of some big mountain we just climbed well how do you propose we get back down and you’re talking about doing years of research what good will it do if we can’t get the information back to earth or are we planning to spend the rest of our lives here i can think of worse places spend the rest of our lives no no jim is right our whole project is a failure unless we can get our findings back to earth but how our rocket is wrecked can we build another i don’t know that yet we might be able to salvage some of the essential parts and maybe build others but it’s a big job and we’ll need the help of the government here without it we don’t stand a chance even with it it’s no sure thing i don’t know why they wouldn’t help us icron said they were interested in interplanetary flight well there’s only one way to find out as soon as we get settled jim and i will go before the council and ask for their assistance if our rocket ship is to be reconstructed we’ll need all the help you can give us that’s why we are here to ask for your approval and assistance do you really think the rocket can be

repaired that depends on how much of it can be salvaged there shouldn’t be too much trouble to construct a new shell but the big problem will be if the atomic power heads have been destroyed or in that case you could not undertake such a flight well we’d have to work out some substitute possibly from your corium we will send a party to salvage your ship whenever you are ready we want to help however this is a matter that must be discussed by our council we will let you know our decision shortly thank you thank you i was anxious that was not made to sound too easy however the approval will be granted do you still object to my plan to destroy these people and all the people in the world as well yes i do we will build others from the same design a fleet of them a hundred fleets and when we finish with the ruins of their world what then a plan to conquer the universe more rocket ships where is the end of it i seek only the sanctuary of a place to live for our people our planet is dying the corium will be gone what plan do you suggest to save ourselves that we make a pact with them for certain areas of the earth the people who have come here have no power or authority to make packs once we let them escape once their ship is gone it may well be our last chance for survival surely they’ll make other trips what if they return in power and force and conquer us they will kill us i ask for a vote of the council my plan or telemars icon i need hardly caution the senior counselor of the secrecy of this decision the space travelers will not be warned we will let them proceed with the rebuilding of their ship and the naive belief that we will let them return to earth once the rocket is ready they will become our prisoners fellow counselors soon now soon the evacuation from a dead planet will begin first the armies then the civilians this factory you’ve given us to work in is certainly ideal for our purpose some of those amazing new light metals you’ve shown me should be able to take the pressure perfectly i have developed several that i think will be suitable and this assistant that i’m sending to you will see that you have the very best workman available you’ve undertaken quite a job my friend no most of the instruments are still intact oh i don’t think it should be too difficult for jim justin not with your knowledge and advice available to him you’re right dr lane justin is our most eminent physicist and engineer you couldn’t be in better hands i’ve already learned that and i have arranged for our astronomers to put aside their present projects help you make any observations necessary to plot your return trip how long do you think it’s going to take well the sooner the better as you know when we took off the earth and mars were at their closest the distance between them grows greater every day as does the amount of fuel we’ll need that doctor is our big problem as you know the atomic power heads were destroyed in the crash but from what justin tells me i think we should be able to substitute korean i hope so interplanetary flight has always been a very great interest of mine feel free to call on us if you need any help that from micron is a very generous offer quarium is our most precious [Applause] [Applause] substance are you jim that’s right your new assistant has arrived oh thanks show me there’s no one to show in i’m your new assistant my name is what’s the matter is something wrong oh no no no it’s just that i uh i oh i’m sort of puzzled over these uh these new metals well this is the one you want both can take the pressure but this has a better coefficient of expansion for temperature variations should have known justin knew what he was doing you like him oh i think he’s a wonderful man then i think you’ll do too

he’s my father oh well let’s get to work um say his food is really great there’s a reason and those hydroponic chemicals they use they put every vitamin we know off plus several other tissue building elements no wonder there’s so few sick people here these are really delicious an amazing people made an illustration what science can do who would think that forced to live underground they’ve mastered the highly complex problem of raising food to survive on in a way they’re better off instead of fields in the open subject the uncertainties of weather they have great tanks miles of them with their controlled temperatures they raise practically everything they wish they’ve made this into a kind of garden of eden you’ll excuse me you’re not going back to the lab again i have to i have a few problems i have to solve oh can i help you can i come with you thanks cal but no i’ll be all right [Applause] if you want some more revenge just whistle poor steve so busy carrying a typewriter around the world with him that he never had time to fall in love then he met a lady scientist you’re not in love with me huh no just making it up don’t ever believe anything a writer says especially a newspaper writer besides we have nothing in common i bet you’ve never been to a football game or seen the dodgers in action at evidence field well it makes sense female scientist goes for male scientists two of a kind me i’m just a guy you know i think we both need a couple drinks i’ve just made a big play for you i know no soap no soap steve but you’re wrong i have been to lots of football games i’m really not such a test tube specimen as you seem to think if i’m an idiot about jim it’s something i can’t help maybe you should try harder oh good evening you won’t need it until tomorrow if i find it i’ll have it put aside for you thank you good night good night so i have to know when they’re going to be able to fight back to earth it’s too early to tell yet i would have learned more if the girl hadn’t interrupted me well she doesn’t suspect you oh no i’m sure that good i must be sure that they’re concealing nothing from me yes well i didn’t expect to find you working tonight i was talking to father about this at dinner he gave me an idea i couldn’t wait to try it out yes well he thinks if we increase the temperature more rapidly the molecules will release more energy it’s what you call a higher sparking power for the trigger mechanism i hope he’s right if he is it’ll save us a lot of time is it ready all lost we can connect those cables now i know it’ll work this time that’s fine well this will tell the story now it’s got to spark to at least 200 or we’ll never get off the ground [Applause] all right switch on

[Applause] look at that i knew it worked [Applause] i’ve got to tell dr lane right away you go ahead i’ll close up here [Applause] so yes this is a very good one that’s the earth but it’s partially obscured by mist yes it’s getting further away every day we tested the new firing mechanism and it works it’ll register 200 it went to almost 300. you mean we’ll actually be able to get back easily it’ll take about a week or so to get it built to scale and get it installed but you and carol can start figuring out the fuel load now as of what date you know the distance is widening figure it a month from now fine that’ll give everyone time to gather up whatever we want to take back come carol yes there’s no question about it they will be able to take off for their own planet let them think so do you know how long before they’ve been ready no but i’ll find out in time good i want them to complete their work and we’ll step in but there can be no doubt about it i heard it myself why does he act this way i took it for granted that we’d show him everything we know from what a leader reports he plans to let you complete your work and then at the last minute take it away from you my advice to you is to leave before he realizes that you’re ready to take off but we can’t we let it be known only this morning that we plan to take off in a month but you could be ready in two weeks couldn’t you oh it’s useless he has spies everywhere that know every step of our progress jim i think i know something we can do so try to get that section finished as soon as you can it’s almost ready don’t go in there it might explode what is it what happened i don’t know i was working and suddenly there was a great flash and explosion behind me elsa come here i need help i’m all right now is there much damage just a trigger mechanism but it’ll take at least another month to replace it that long maybe longer oh no everybody can go home now there’s nothing more you can do today beautiful performance dr lane chuckle lane yes oh what’s the matter we’re in trouble it’s serious jim are you hurt no no this is the rocket damage no but i want everyone to think it is i faked an explosion i’ve learned there’s a plot to keep us from leaving ikron’s government plans to

take the rocket away from us as soon as it’s finished are you sure of this positive what can we do we can leave in two weeks they think it’s going to take at least another month for us to repair the damage can we get away without their annoying it’s our only chance we’ve got to try well we better tell the others right away no no not yet it’s too dangerous a secret just get them to speed up their work jim you’re tired you want to try and get a little rest and relax yes i intend to tonight i think maybe we’ll play a little bridge bridge if you introduce that game on this planet the people will never forgive you four hawks fast but bye i’ve got good help for you that’s wonderful support i’ll make it easily where did you ever learn to play bridge jim taught me i’m surprised as you carol haven’t you noticed that jim and elita are that way you’re supposed to say it isn’t true of course it isn’t true sit down jim i’ll go after why did you say a thing like that wake up genius i was once a lonely hearts editor sorry that happened i understand no i don’t think you do oh yes i do you even taught me that and i must be crazy how many years you’ve been in love with him three how many tears do you think it’ll take to wash out three years so wastey i can’t i’m about to win a game for myself you ever play solitaire i’ve been playing it for a long time please go but it gets tiresome just like some girls i know what do you mean you’re crying for exactly one hour and 17 minutes will nobody ask you to sit in on it no it’s the idiot in me steve that gets tiresome too all right that’ll be all for today fellas all right i’d like to make that installation myself oh by the way you have tomorrow off there won’t be anything for you to do until the day after well thanks they don’t know it but they’ve done their last work on this baby what about that the emergency lights two minutes work i can do that after takeoff you know i can’t believe it it’s finished ready to go it’s great isn’t it yes yes it is what’s the matter later you’ll be going of course i’m happy for your sake you’ll be able to get back now that’s right i’ll be leaving would i well it isn’t as though you’re going so far after all the earth is only 35 or 40 million miles from here you know the way we’ve constructed this thing there’s a good chance we might be able to bring back a couple of extra people i didn’t want to tell you until i was sure of it but you’re going back with me you and your father no why there’s a reason why our government wants a rocket ship ten years from now there’ll be no more car in after that all life here will be extinct unless something is done you mean what icon wants to do no there are other solutions yes but unfortunately he’s in power there’s tillamore he’s a great leader it’ll be better for the people of our planet that he and my father can we trust can we tell anyone we’re ready for takeoff well it if i can fight in telemark i’m risking the fate of my whole group five people yes i see your point

whatever we decide here you have my promise that i will not reveal your plans will you yourself delamar come with us as spokesman for your planet as a statesman to plead your cause we and you can deliver whatever news there is from the world beyond perhaps to replace corium earth will the many things we have here inventions far beyond anything earthmen have yet achieved interplanetary trade relations you’ll go there telemark yes i will go but once i am gone icron will declare me a traitor or perhaps at first but when you have talked to our people through earth’s broadcast your plan and that you are on a mission for them there will be a new vote in the council icron will be overthrown how can you be sure of that yes i will stay here as your representative and organize the active opposition but don’t worry elite you are going not i but i’ll see you again i have confidence in tillmar that i will i’ve called you all together to tell you that thanks to jim repairs on the rocket ship are now complete we’ll take off tomorrow well how do you know to function properly you haven’t been able to make any real tests that’s the chance we’ll have to take but i’m positive it’ll work what’s to keep them from stopping us that’s just it they don’t know that it’s ready and if we handle it right they’re very careful we’ll be gone before they know it we’ve worked out plans whereby each one of us will enter the ship tomorrow at different times without arousing suspicion and remain there until takeoff everything must be done with extreme secrecy icon apparently has spies everywhere so let’s get packing i just if you don’t mind uh and that is that i’ve asked a leader to come back with me and be my wife certainly an idea am i supposed to say sign a witty remark delamar want me us also why don’t we take people i done oh don’t apologize jim i think it’s live specimens backwards well anybody seen that deck of cards what do you want with a deck of cards i feel a game of solitaire coming up come on press it yes everything all right yes this gets all the important stuff the others will be aboard later in the day yes i’m worried about the rocket sir something is going on it looks very suspicious why do you think so first of all no workmen have been allowed inside the rocket in the last 24 hours and secondly the corium tanks which were to hold fuel for their return have been moved from the laboratory you mean they may have been placed in the rocket i don’t know even if they are on the ship it may mean nothing but i thought you ought to know you might want to question one of them well there is one weapon question the girl a leader good i will bring her here no no no not here in the council room i will call a meeting at once hey don’t i know you from somewhere girl scientist oh yes now i remember you know i’ve been thinking if we make it back to earth i’d like to do a series of articles enchanting idea very worthwhile but you see i i’m not an author i need a ghostwriter do you suppose it just how long would it take or i don’t know maybe the rest of our lives if you’re kidding i’ll break your neck i’m not kidding i think you make a wonderful collaborator i’m not happy leaving you here but think of the adventure before you i’ll miss you but not for long my child and i’m sure you’re going to be very happy with him i think so too are you going aboard the rocket now

yes goodbye what is this terrace you come with us yes the tanks are on the rocket ship but i told you why the new outlet valves have to be tested why are the new ones the old ones didn’t fit they were damaged during the explosion you say they cannot possibly be ready for another two weeks for a takeoff i only know what jim says and i heard him say that just yesterday everyone else on board yes well i’ll be off i’ll follow in 10 minutes weren’t until am i supposed to meet you here yes that was the plan they should have been here by now jim are you sure everything is all right yes don’t worry about it it’s a long trip you better get started doctor where’s the leader it’s almost time to go that’s what i came to tell you you must leave immediately while you can a leader is being held before the council for questioning and she and tillamaya are both there yes telemare’s double crossed us there’s no proof of that she may be in danger of her life forget a leader leaving the rocket while you still can no we’ll go to the council meeting tillmar may even have done something to the rocket will you tell us the truth or go online i suggest we hold her and send our men to seize the rocket at once a council of vote on it wait if she’s telling the truth what will be gained by seizing the rocket according to her it isn’t ready to go and if we take over the rocket now it may never be ready for flight we need the earth men working on it if she’s lying it’ll depart and we will be left with nothing i cron i have trust in the things of the universe and in the creator you are a naive fumbling old man a vote icon’s plan it’s time for action knock words those who favor icron wait why are you here we should request this permission to have all men investigate the rocket why should it be investigated at all what is all this i have the promise of your help we have good and just reason for believing that you have betrayed us if that is so you will find our generosity is at an end and the sort of hospitality we will show will have a different taste a vote icron’s plan or tillamots very well the rocket is to be seized at once these people are to be held hey jim should have been here long ago i don’t understand it i do this trouble something must have gone wrong i think i see jim and tulamar now with elita of the sky hunger there’s nobody hold open turn on the attitude can we get out take your stations stab yourself in
