Synopsis:
An atomic war causes the Bittering family, Harry, Cora, and their children, Dan, Laura, and David, natives of Earth, to join the 1000 humans who travelled to Mars 60 million miles away on a rocket. Shortly after their arrival, Harry decides he wants to go back to Earth, as Mars is too different from Earth. He has a sense of unease about the whole situation. Unfortunately, an atom bomb hits New York City, destroying all the space rockets and stranding the Bitterings on Mars.
