Working for O.S.I., the Office of Scientific Investigation, A-Man agent Jeffrey Stewart and his partner Dan Forbes are sent to a local hardware store where they find a strong magnetic field has magnetized every metal item in the store. Investigating further, they eventually trace the source of the magnetism to an airborn flight carrying scientist Howard Denker, now dying of radiation poisoning, who has carted on board with him a new radioactive element which he has bombarded with alpha particles for 200 hours. The element, dubbed 'serranium' grows geometrically by creating matter out of energy which it absorbs from metallic objects surrounding it. Stewart calculates that if the substance is not destroyed soon that within 24 hours or so it will have grown large enough to throw Earth out of its orbit. Written by

The Canadian government operates a top-secret plant in Nova Scotia. They own the most powerful Deltatron in existence. When they realize the common danger, they'll let us use it.
Nova Scotia is 4000 miles away. The period between cycles is 11 hours. How are we gonna transport it there in that time?
Our jets travel at 600 miles an hour. And what's more, the new alloys used in our jets are non-magnetic. They will not be affected by the cargo. You, Dr. Stewart, and Forbes can follow in another ...

Odd premise about the discovery of an isotope which is magnetic in nature and ever expanding in consequence. It eats all energies in its ever expanding appetite. It is finally subdued by an ingenius solution. This remains on my short list of sci-fi films I'd like to see again but can't find.
