Most of the action seems to take place in New York, the home of the United Nations (and also based in views of the car license plates). But whenever a newspaper is flashed on the screen, it is always based in either Los Angeles or San Francisco. Further, all satellite launches in the 1950s were from Cape Canaveral in Florida.

Roger Corman directed this forgotten(and forgettable) science fiction story about Earth satellites being mysteriously destroyed, only to have it revealed that unknown aliens(who refuse to reveal themselves) are responsible, and that they warn the United Nations to stop launching them, or face destruction. Of course they refuse, leading to infiltration and sabotage on the next manned mission to continue the launches. Perennial second-billed Dick Miller(Roger Corman favorite) is given the heroic lead here, and isn't too bad; it's just a pity it comes in this lifeless and drab film, with little credibility or imagination.
