NEW SPACEFLIGHT TO MARS
The first flight of the million dollar spaceship Zero-X ends in disaster. The machine falls back to Earth from a dizzying height and crashes in the Pacific. Red planet Mars is as far out of reach as ever. Someone has sabotaged the flight and ruined the landing attempt.
Two years after the disaster, the World Security Council meets for the last time behind heavily guarded doors. Single item on the agenda: how do we insure the safety of ship and crew in the case of a new flight with a new Zero-X? There's only one organisation that can help: International Rescue! Will Jeff Tracy be prepared to send his craft to their landing pads when there is no disaster?
